        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. 

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
