The European Union is developing and funding a project, the Symbrion program, to develop a prototype team of shape-changing, self-organizing mini robots that work as a team. These robots will be used in places such as disasters, like earthquakes, sent into collapsed buildings to search or lift rubble off of survivors. They are refered to as "swarms" of robots because they are an inch square in size, and software has been developed to allow individual robots, to collaborate, using their individual attributes to make the most of their performance.
