There are two ways robots can collaborate with each other and work together, either by programming them for specific tasks or by having one central command center that organizes all the individual robots themselves. But researchers have developed a new method that combines the two, Nature Communications “.
Researchers are able to develop individual robots that can work on their own, but when they communicate with the rest of the group, once the connection occurs, robots do the task that is programmed to do it together and in the same way. When a problem occurs during this process, Control from one robot to another easily.
The researchers say they are now working on the technology with robots that can move in three dimensions and have flexible connections. In the future, the team hopes this will lead to the development of robots that do not need programming and adaptability.
