Résumé : We present a robot swarm composed of Pi-puck robots that maintain a blockchain network. The blockchain serves as security layer to neutralize Byzantine robots (faulty, malfunctioning, or malicious robots). In the context of this work, we implemented a framework for high-throughput communication using a decentralized mobile ad-hoc network. This work serves as a building block for secure real-world deployments of robot swarms. Our results show that the use of a blockchain is feasible and warranted in embodied robot swarm deployments.
