micro-swarm robot research

Really neat micro-swarm robot research.

from the article:
Quote
Working in the EU-funded I-SWARM project, the team created a 100-strong posse of centimetre-scale robots and made considerable progress toward building swarms of ant-sized micro-bots. Several of the researchers have since gone on to work on creating swarms of robots that are able to reconfigure themselves and assemble autonomously into larger robots in order to perform different tasks. Their work is being continued in the Symbrion and Replicator projects that are funded under the EUís Seventh Framework Programme.

They move kind of slow. They even took a while to stop under a light.
