Tiny robots are collectively intelligent
Today’s Video of the Day from the EPFL describes tiny jumping robots that communicate and work together as a team.
The three-legged robots, or Tribots, weigh only about 10 grams. They display very little physical intelligence on their own, but as a network they can overcome many obstacles.
“With their unique collective intelligence, our tiny robots can demonstrate better adaptability to unknown environments; therefore, for certain missions, they would outperform larger, more powerful robots,” said Professor Jamie Palk.
The study is published in the journal Nature
