Robots are undoubtedly getting smarter. But they’re at their smartest when they work as a team. Researchers can now study how they move in groups in the very latest TU Delft lab: the Cyberzoo.

It will soon be the home of hovering, crawling and rolling robots. “We used to think that intelligence could be best accomplished in one large robot. But we’re now moving towards the idea that a group of smaller, simpler robots is actually much smarter”, says one of the initiators, Dr. Chris Verhoeven.
