Using Microsoft Surface software, which can be described as an interactive tabletop, a system to control swarm robots has been developed at MIT. Getting data from various resources, processing them and finally organizing the movements and outputs of swarm robot systems is the main challenge when desiging a robotic system based on a large number of robots. The new system simplifies this process by using a common and user friendly software. A few common examples of the end uses of swarm robots are disaster response, search and rescue missions, military applications. For original story, please visit here.
