Autonomous Interacting Flying Robots Presentation at TED 2012

This video shows the full version of Vijay Kumar’s presentation at the recent TED2012 Conference, which terminates with the James Bond sequence.

Vijay Kumar headed General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Lab at the University of Pennsylvania from 1998-2004. Now he is the Deputy Dean for Education in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, where he continues his work in robotics, blending computer science and mechanical engineering to create the next generation of robotic wonders.

“Agile aerial robots like this have many applications. You can send them inside buildings as first responders to look for intruders, maybe look for biochemical leaks … [or they] can be used for transporting cargo.” – Vijay Kumar
