Self-organizing robots: Robotic construction crew needs no foreman (w/ video)

Self-organizing robots: Robotic construction crew needs no foreman (w/ video) | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
On the plains of Namibia, millions of tiny termites are building a mound of soil—an 8-foot-tall 'lung' for their underground nest. During a year of construction, many termites will live and die, wind and rain will erode the structure, and yet the colony's life-sustaining project will continue.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "The TERMES robots can carry bricks, build staircases, and climb them to add bricks to a structure, following low-level rules to independently complete a construction project. Credit: Eliza Grinnell, Harvard SEAS"

This Robot Is Changing How We Cure Diseases

This Robot Is Changing How We Cure Diseases | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Every week at an NIH drug-testing lab, a robotics system performs millions of experiments faster and with greater precision than any human could. The simple goal: to find new treatments and cures.
Sharrock's insight:

This is amazing how these robots can assist in conducting so many experiements/tests.

Robots to the Rescue

Robots to the Rescue | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Roadside bombs in Afghanistan, mines in the Persian Gulf’s shipping lanes, blazing infernos in downtown neighborhoods – danger seemingly lurks around every corner.
Sharrock's insight:

more information: "While UAS grab most of the headlines, unmanned ground vehicles and maritime systems are also making inroads. Systems such as Lockheed Martin’s Squad Mission Support System lighten soldiers’ loads, improve combat readiness and perform critical re-supply and casualty evacuation missions.

At sea, mines can wreak havoc on shipping lanes. Now, unmanned underwater systems will soon replace the ships that sail into these hazardous waters to clear mines. Featuring an unmanned, autonomous Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle, Lockheed Martin’s Remote Minehunting System will provide the primary mine reconnaissance capability for the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship Mine Countermeasures Mission Package."
