Self-Replicating Robotic System in a Structured Environment

Authors(2) :-J Shashavali, K. Thanweer Basha

The idea of self-replicating machines was presented over fifty years prior by John von Neumann. In any case, as far as anyone is concerned a completely self-sufficient self-replicating robot has not been executed as of not long ago. Here we portray a completely independent model that exhibits mechanical self replication. This work expands on our past outcomes in remote-controlled automated replication and semi-self-sufficient replicating mechanical frameworks.
