Swarms: Current Research and Future Applications

Mar 12, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Collections of robots working together to achieve tasks--swarm systems--are an exciting and intriguing means to solve problems in novel ways. Swarms provide solutions to challenges in agriculture, search and rescue, planetary exploration, warehouse automation, nanomedicine, and many more fields. While we currently operate single robots even in our homes, there are fundamental differences between operating a single robot and a swarm. The panel of experts at this session will discuss current research, future applications, and challenges in the adoption and wide-scale use of swarms.
