Science can only prove something is incorrect. Religion can do neither - since by definition it is an issue of faith. - William M. Spears.

"The focus of Swarm Robotics is to study how a swarm of relatively simple physically embodied robots can be designed and controlled to collectively accomplish tasks that are beyond the capabilities of a single robot."
