Robot ants are here to terrify and impress you

‘BionicANTs’ by Festo are cooperative robotic ants that work together under set rules.

The ants have a 3D stereo camera in their heads to identify nearby objects and contextualize the environment.

The opto-electrical sensor in their abdomen can also recognize floor structure and its movement in relation to the ground.

Festo claims the ants demonstrate how autonomous components can work together to solve complex tasks.
