Mission Impossible: Robot Library Heist

Can’t find that book you just put down? Maybe this robot stole it.

The above video shows a team of robots cooperating to find and retrieve a library book. The robots are regarded as a single unit dubbed the “Swarmanoid“.This partciular heist was masterminded by Marco Dorigo and his colleagues at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium. The video won the video competition at the Conference on Artificial Intelligence in San Francisco last week.
