PALO ALTO (KRON) — A mechanical wonder from the brainiacs at Stanford University.
They have created a team of six tiny robots that can pull a car. They are called uBots.
Like ants, the uBots work as a team to move objects hundreds of times their size, like a frog being carried along by ants.
The tiny robots use micro-adhesion and team-load sharing, to conquer the weight of the nearly 4,000-pound car.
The Stanford researchers noticed ants can boost their lifting and dragging power by using three-out-of-their-six legs at once.
