When a robot is not able to accomplish a task on its own, a swarm of robots certainly does. That is the undeniable future and we are heading towards a time where robots will move in groups to accomplish complex set of missions that are too dangerous for us humans. Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have an eye for the future and that is why they are developing a group of robots which can be controlled just with a simple swipe of a finger on the screen of your tablet.

These intelligent robots communicate with themselves and have enough intellect to decide how the task has to be accomplished with minimum delay and maximum efficiency. Visual clue for these robots is the light on the floor which acts as an indicator for them to reconnaissance. One simple example of how these robots behave is when the person puts two fingers on the tablet which is an indication for the robots to split into teams of two.

Robots that can make decision on their and communicate with other robots too.

Such kinds of robots come very handy in disaster management situations like an earthquake or Tsunami. In such situations controlling a single robot to perform the given task is not practically possible, rather, controlling a swarm of robots who know what the intended task is much easier.

These robots developed by Georgia Institute of Technology are more intelligent than other similar robotics initiatives since they can think on their own and accomplish different set of tasks without re-programming. Moreover these small intelligent machines can be controlled by anyone without much knowledge of robotics. It’s just as simple as playing an arcade game on your mobile devices!
