Intelligence series: Swarm intelligence for robots

Swarm robotics uses many simple robots to perform tasks. Individual agent capabilities are low, but algorithms rely on the ‘collective intelligence’ that emerges from agent interaction. This can reduce cost of automation and simplify robot design.

It has been suggested that swarm robotics will be able to be used for automated security systems. Additionally, NASA and DARPA have announced swarm robotics projects in development for surface planetary exploration and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) deployment respectively.
