European Microbots

Roland Piquepaille writes, "IST Results describes a EU-funded project to build several kinds of microrobots in the last three years. These robots are very small (about 1.5 cm by 3 cm), have limited on-board intelligence and are wirelessly controlled by a central robot control system. A follow-on project has already started, with an even more ambitious goal: deploy real swarms of up to 1,000 robot clients. Such robot swarms are expected to perform a variety of applications, including micro assembly, biological, medical or cleaning tasks." The follow-on project mentioned is the I-SWARM project that we've reported on before. For more, see Roland's blog, the MiCRoN project page or the I-SWARM website.
