Abstract

With the advent of new discoveries in material sciences, it may be possible, in the future, to construct extremely small robots. Explores the idea of employing an excitable medium in the form of a molecular array of sensors and actuators to provide the controller for a nano‐robot by exploiting decentralised computation.
