Swarm of drones

swarm of drones is a co-ordinated set of UAVs , 1 , terrestrial, underground or maritime 2 , intended to perform a common task in various types of civil or military applications 2 . It’s a branch of swarm robotics .

Some bases of group travel were established by the American artificial life specialist , Craig Reynolds in 1987 3 .

They are used in research, in the field of artistic and military experiments .

If most tasks are automated, some experiments can control this type of swarm by gestures 4 .

The French Ministry of Defense organizes under the name SUSIE (Supervision of swarm intelligence systems) various experiments on this theme 5 .

Trainings exist for learning the control of swarms of drones on the battlefield on the SUSIE system in France 6 .
