Christopher Parrott, Tony J. Dodd and Roderich Groß, HiGen: A High-Speed Genderless Mechanical Connection Mechanism with Single-Sided Disconnect for Self-Reconfigurable Modular Robots


 This work presents HiGen, a high-speed genderless mechanical connection mechanism for the docking of robotic modules. HiGen connectors can join with one another in a manner that allows either side to disconnect in the event of failure. The HiGen connector is intended for future work in modular robotics.
