Reuters reports in a video that an “ambitious plan to replicate the brain functions of honeybees and ants within drones is under development at the University of Sussex, University of Sheffield and Queen Mary University of London.” The team believes that developing “computationally and energy efficient autonomous robots would represent a step chance in bio-robotics.” The team is using virtual reality, machine learning, and radar tools, among others, to study bees in the hope of translating its findings into new UAV technology.
