Harvard researchers received a $10 million grant back in 2009 to create a colony of flying robotic bees, or RoboBees to among other things, spur innovation in ultra-low-power computing and electronic “smart” sensors; and refine coordination algorithms to manage multiple, independent machines. The 5-year, National Science Foundation-funded Micro Air Vehicles Project could lead to a better understanding of how to artificially mimic the unique collective behavior and intelligence of a bee colony and advance work on the construction of small-scale flying mechanical devices.
