These bots construct structures using 'group intelligence.' Currently, they can build pyramids, buildings and towers using foam bricks, without relying on an external communicator or a foreman to guide them. They can build staircases to climb and add bricks wherever required.
Researchers are hopeful that in the future, these de-centralized bots can help build colonies on other planets.
According to researchers, the new TERMES system shows that robots can build complex structures without relying on an external commander. This system "requires simple robots that cooperate by modifying their environment."
