This robots swarm take ispiration from the behaviour of honey bees swarm.
When hunting honey bees choose a new location, the collective choice they make is the result of simple interaction between the swarm members.
Can we consider individual ants as analogous to individual neurons?
Deborah Gordon, a biologist at Stanford University, has identified striking similarities in how ant colonies, brains, cells and computer networks regulate themselves. She says:
Swarm Intelligence is contributing to improve our robotics systems, creating new ways to help humans in high risk operations.
