Swarm Robotics

Learn how multiple robots can behave like a swarm in this video from NOVA: “Making Stuff Wilder.” Host and technology columnist David Pogue explores how individual robots can communicate and work together as a group, acheiving more as a group than on an individual basis. At the University of Pennsylvania, researchers demonstrate for Pogue how a swarm of robots can act as a search and rescue team. Swarm robotics has these guiding principles, inspired by swarms in nature: each robot is self-controlled as much as possible, each robot primarily acts on local information, and no one robot is in charge.
