Robots that fly and cooperate autonomously

This is a cool TED talks about flying robots that actually can communicate with one another to assist people in many area’s in life, in industries and with amazing accuracy.

Vijay Kumar who is a roboticist at the University of Pennsylvania, tells his story about these powerfully new robots he and a group of other robotic engineers have created and implemented the dedicated research towards, (from 1998-2004) which eventually lead to the full application of these cool multi-robot’s that communicate with one another autonomously.

This is definitely a break through in the robotics sciences, and for the robotic industry overall, and hopefully they can get these bad boys up to speed enough to make real world change when it comes to manufacturing, and potentially civilian everyday usage. Its pretty much a sure thing that the new technology will be gathered up by the Military intelligence agencies and used for further research and potential weapon systems redesigns and applications, but lets hope that isn’t the case unless its absolutely necessary.

They can be used to lift objects if they are used in greater numbers, and it is showing based on the video up above that this new age technology will make a huge difference in the movement of cargo, and potentially help in building anything that requires repetitive motion lifting, which can help in most industrial area applications.
