INSPIRED by the biology of a bee and the insect’s hive behavior …
we aim to push advances in miniature robotics and the design of compact high-energy power sources; spur innovations in ultra-low-power computing and electronic “smart” sensors; and refine coordination algorithms to manage multiple, independent machines.

Potential future uses include search and rescue, surveillance, and environmental monitoring applications – and even taking the place of real bees to pollinate crops.
