Victims of disasters are saved by the robots, similar to ants

Ants are truly amazing insects, which, with their tiny sizes the ability to build huge nests, gather food for the thousands of relatives and fight with other colonies. They can easily perform such complex tasks within the team — each of them has their duties, and every action they perform together. Scientists from Switzerland I believe that by creating a colony of tiny robots that work together as well as ants, they can quickly find victims of earthquakes and other disasters under the ruins of houses. The development of such robots has already begun, and scientists have already shown what they're capable of.

Robotic ants called Tribots. They're made very simply, and with its 10 grams of weight consists of three movable plates, which are bent in different directions. Moving them, insects can crawl and jump in different directions. Thus, they can move through obstacles and jump over cliffs — when people search under piles of stones, such skills are clearly useful to them.

Robots communicate with each other

Ideally, the developers want little robots interacted with each other in the same way as ants. They strive to make each little robot had a role. For example, it would be nice if any of them can be programmed for control of the entire colony, exploration of the territory and warning relatives of danger, or to gather the materials for construction.

By the Way, to help each other know

Scientists say that robots can now take on different tasks and communicate with each other . However, in the video, these skills mechanical ants has not been shown. If this is true, these robots may even be smarter than these ants, because their functions can change at any time, depending on the situation. For example, if the robot was engaged in exploring the territory, if necessary, he can give the command to collection items.

the Best robots to rescue people

Creating a colony of tiny robots, the researchers can teach them to find people under the rubble of destroyed houses. Today, it already uses large robots with caterpillar wheels like tanks, but they are too expensive, can not penetrate into the narrow gap can break, thereby complicating the rescue operation. Robotic ants, in turn, low-cost, compact and many — if one of them breaks down, the colony will continue to work as if nothing had happened.

For the rescue of people from-under blockages are not only tracked robots, but the four-legged rescuer. One of the most amazing of them is Centauro, who can move through the ruins with four legs. He also has two hands that he .
