Swarm Robotics – Ground Robots Cooperate with Flying AR Drone – 11048
The Concept of Robot Swarms
This video is about a real cooperative solution for Swarm Robotics;
I have always imagined different kind of robots operate together. For Example fyling robots, heavy duty robots, small robots all work as members of a robotic society. Flying robots can fly but their battery time will be limited so after some time they can land on battery carrier robots and continue their operation after charging on them.
Some robots may caryy wireless systems to increse the range of wireless. Some robots may carry high definition cameras so the swarm could be managed by humans. So this video is a good example for what is Swarm Robotics Bring to us in the future.
