Description

Fire ants are teaching robots how to slack at work. Scientists programmed robots to act like ants, and learned a small number of ants actually do most of the work. And in confined, chaotic environments, that’s be a good thing.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology studied how fire ants dig tunnels and found with less workers, the ants avoided traffic jams and improved their teamwork overall. Optimizing robots’ activity together could help with disaster recovery and improving self-driving cars.
