In the past few months, we have covered plenty of awesome bio-inspired robots. In the future, robots will not only perform tasks but collaborate with each other. This video from Festo covers how they managed to build BionicANTs using 3D printing. These machines can make autonomous decisions and cooperate with each other.
The challenge for the engineers was to integrate all the necessary functions of an artificial ant in the smallest of spaces. The above video explains how these smart bionic ants were made.
