In this episode of Robots in Depth, Per Sjöborg speaks with Spring Berman about her extensive experience in the field of swarm robotics.

One of the underlying ideas of the area is designing robot controls similar to the ones used in nature by different types of swarms of animals, systems that work without having a leader. We get to hear how many robots can be used together to handle tasks that would not be possible using one or a small number of robots. We also get introduced to the opportunities of mixing artificial animals with real ones.

Spring describes some of the challenges within swarm robotics, which can be as diverse as mathematical modelling and regulatory issues. She also comments on the next frontier in swarm robotics and the different research areas that are needed to make progress.

This interview was recorded in 2016.
