A Robot Swarm descends on NYC's Museum of Math

Roboticist-in-residence James McLurkin provided a complicated preview of his Robotic Swarm at NYC’s Museum of Arithmetic this week. The presentation detailed the background and programming ideas of those sensor- and speaker-laden bots — which have a behavior of spitting out eight-bit-type tunes whereas they work. The digital creatures exhibit group behaviors very similar to ants and bees, working collectively to map out their environment and talk with one another — and there is a particular hierarchy to their group. The Robotic Swarm exhibit shall be open to the general public when it is accomplished later this yr and will probably be displayed beneath a clear flooring so you’ll be able to watch the motion occur from your personal god-like perspective. Head on right down to the gallery for a better take a look at how the Robotic Swarm will arrange itself when the robopocalypse lastly arrives.
