The Ants: A Community of Microrobots

A community of cubic-inch microrobots called "ants" is located at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology artificial intelligence laboratory. As part of a larger initiative to develop technologies for planetary exploration, the two main goals of the Ants project are "to push the limit of microrobotics by integrating many sensors and actuators into a small package, and to form a structured robotic community from the interactions of many simple individuals." Information pertaining to topics such as Hardware, Software, Related Research at the MIT AI Lab, Related Research Elsewhere, and Related Web Sites is listed under these subheadings. At the Website, the user will also find links to related MIT project sites such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Mars Exploration. These projects are an example of the many applications of robotic communities.
