Two Roombots metamodules (each 2 Roombots modules in series). The test shows the behavior without an included "virtual connector", i.e. an additional procedure to prevent collision of the approaching hemisphere segment of Roombots (RB). The rotation of the RB is not corrected for the approaching hemisphere, hence collision occurs, although only in a small region. Work and video by Manon Picard.
