This week, Sheffield Robotics and Bristol Robotics Laboratory jointly demonstrated their work on swarming robots at the Science Museum in London. On show were up to 300 Kilobot robots that self-synchronised their clocks, organised into groups and trails, and fought simulated cancer cells. The teams, led by Roderich Gross (Sheffield Robotics) and Sabine Hauert (Bristol Robotics Lab), also offered hands-on activities with the swarming robots.
