Abstract

We investigate the pattern formation problem that requires a swarm of autonomous mobile robots to form a given target pattern in the three-dimensional Euclidean space. We show a necessary and sufficient condition for synchronous robots to form a given target pattern from an initial configuration. We give a pattern formation algorithm for solvable instances that does not need any local memory at each robot.
