Hundreds of Tiny Robots Grow Bio-inspired Shapes

Hundreds of small robots can work in a team to create biology-inspired shapes - without an underlying master plan, purely based on local communication and movement.

It Takes a Swarm: These Robots Talk to Each Other, Make Decisions as a Group

As the old saying doesnt exactly go: hundreds of artificial minds are better than one.

Command and Control of UAV Swarms with the Wing GCS Ground Control Station

While there have been demonstrations of swarms involving up to 1000 UAVs, there are few examples of use in practical scenarios. One reason for this is the difficulty of effectively organising and controlling the swarm using a standard transmitter and laptop computer.

OSU researcher part of DARPA grant for autonomous drone swarms

An Oregon State University computer science professor is part of a team that will receive up to $7.1 million to develop a drone swarm infrastructure to help the U.S. military in urban combat.

Swarm of Underwater Robots Mimics Ocean Life

UCSD:  Underwater robots developed by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego offer scientists an extraordinary new tool to study ocean currents and the tiny creatures they transport. Swarms of these underwater robots helped answer some basic questions about the most abundant life forms in the ocean—plankton. Scripps research oceanographer Jules Jaffe designed and built the miniature autonomous underwater explorers, or M-AUEs, to study small-scale environmental processes taking place in the ocean. The ocean-probing instruments are equipped with temperature and other sensors to measure the surrounding ocean conditions while the robots “swim” up and down to maintain a constant depth by adjusting their buoyancy. The M-AUEs could potentially be deployed in swarms of hundreds to thousands to capture a three-dimensional view of the interactions between ocean currents and marine life.   Cont'd...
