Towards Biorobotic Builders

Bio-Robotic Builders takes inspiration from the capabilities and approach of termites. Swarms of fully-autonomous mobile robots operating under decentralised control would cooperate to build arbitrarily large structures. In contrast to robotic building systems based around industrial robot arms, the use of mobile robots unlocks unlimited build envelopes.
