The construction industry is different from other industries due to its large-scale projects, high investments, and other reasons.
Skyfi Labs gives you the easiest way to learn and build this project.
About Robot Swarm Construction
Robot swarm construction designed and developed in the Harvard University. Harvard University’s “Self-organizing Systems Research Group” built and programmed the small construction robotics to work together as a swarm. The concept of this technology inspired by termites and their skill in constructing monumental pieces using mud. The Harvard robotics researchers followed the termites working style off without taking any orders from others to create this technology.
The robots (four-wheeled) used in this technology has the ability to build a brick-walls by lifting and laying the small bricks in the required position. With the help of sensors installed within their design, robots can detect the presence of other robots in their way. They also follow the rule of getting out of each other’s way by using the sensors. Due to this application, there is no need for controlling operation for these robots. Like termites, no one needs to control them, but they only need programming to build the things in a proper design.

Design factors of Swarm Robots
The following factors have to consider to get the potential benefits from this technology:-
Applications of Swarm robots:
As this technology improves more, it will help us to build things where humans can’t build those things easily. In the future, robot swarm technology will become an alternative solution to underwater construction, hold back floodwaters and others.
