Swarm Robotics and Claytronics (Shifting Reality)

In our laboratory we have done some small research in swarm robotics over the time, but never quite deep. Swarm Robotics builds in the idea of multiple simple organisms working together towards a common end. The most obvious example in nature are ants. In Carnegie Mellon University, they have an ongoing project called claytronics, in which multiple nano robots work together towards building any imaginable object.

They are currently taking a swarm intelligence approach in getting this project throug, yet, there is a lot of work to de yet. I leave you with the video of the current state of affairs in the Claytronic project.
