Microrobots display versatile movement patterns

System capable of quick transitions between behaviors

Collective behavior and swarm patterns are found everywhere in nature. Robots can also be programmed to act in swarms. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Cornell University, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have developed collectives of microrobots, which they can move in every formation they wish. The research project was published in “Nature Communications”.
