Using very simple MAVs, developed by Severin Leven and a company called Sensefly, they’re able to demo flocking in formations up to ten robots. This flocking algorithm was developed for The Swarming Micro Air Vehicle Network (SMAVNET)project.
The SMAVNET project aims at developing swarms of flying robots that can be deployed in disaster areas to rapidly create communication networks for rescuers. Flying robots are interesting for such applications because they are fast, can easily overcome difficult terrain, and benefit from line-of-sight communication.
