Ants communicate and organize challenging, shared tasks while behaving independently. This behavior is an impressive natural model for the coordination of goals. Festo’s BionicANTs, robots designed to make autonomous decisions in conjunction with each other, explore a technological version of ant behavior that could be implemented on a larger scale in manufacturing, especially robotic production sectors.
