Submission + - SPAM: Robotic Bee

ravindra.joisa writes: "A multidisciplinary team of computer scientists, engineers, and biologists at Harvard received a $10 million National Science Foundation (NSF) Expeditions in Computing grant for building small-scale mobile robotic devices. The team at Harvard's Microrobotics Laboratory, aims to create a colony of autonomous, micro-scale flapping wing robots. In the long run, the researchers hope that the project will create more than just a hive of "robobees" as they are known. They propose that the problems that they will have to solve along the way will add insight to everything from search-and-rescue missions, places where MARS rover cannot go, to traffic monitoring."
