Quadrotor Landing Pads Made from Khepera Robots Moving in Formation

Your adorable robotics for the day: GRITS (the Georgia Robotics and Intelligent Systems lab) have trained their Khepera robots to move in formation, and then to come together and form landing pads for their airborne siblings, the Quadrotors (dun dun dun!). You can read all about the algorithm used to control these robots at Ted MacDonald’s page. Or you can just watch these two videos over and over and over again with a mixture of affection, admiration and fear.
