Tiny Ant-inspired Tribots

  • Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, have developed tiny robots Tribots, weighing 10g that can behave and operate like ants. The robots can jump or crawl across surfaces and communicate with each other to complete complex tasks and achieve goals. They are three-legged, T-shaped origami ants.
  • For election and communication purposes, they are equipped with infrared and proximity sensors. 
  • They possess intelligence and strength, hence, as a colony, they may use complex strategies to achieve tasks and can evade large predators too. The tiny ant-inspired Tribots mainly required for emergency search and rescue operation. The study was published in Nature.
