The way of the future: 'swarming' robots

EVOLVINGROBOT is a European research project which has developed an artificial intelligence system to control tiny robots, enabling them to replicate the 'swarming' behaviour seen in insects such as bees or ants, or even in birds and fish. It is an innovation which could have far-reaching implications for a range of human activities, from medical to industrial, military and disaster relief.
