Swarm Robotics

The Georgia Robotics and InTelligent Systems Lab is studying how large-scale robotic teams can solve complex tasks that individual robots cannot solve by themselves. 

Drawing inspiration from swarming insects and flocking birds, researchers are finding that simple robot-to-robot rules make the 'bots move together in interesting and very useful ways.

Multi-Robot Assignment and Formation Control

Multi-Robot Assignment and Formation Control by Georgia Tech GRITS lab

Fifteen robots are programmed to spell G-R-I-T-S. Each robot only knows the relative position of the other robots, and there is no communication between the robots. Watch what happens.
