The Christian Science Monitor reports on a variety of miltary swarming and flocking technologies that are in the works including North Korean surveillance robots, an iRobot swarm of 100 test robots, a US Army initiative for networked ground and aerial robots, and Frontline's security robots. The article also talks a little about larger scale swarming involving thousands of robots. Want more swarm news? A vnunet.com story covers the Gridswarm and Ultraswarm projects which will use tiny flying robots running Linux to form an airborne computer network.
