  • Airplanes are typically built piece by piece.
  • Now imagine a group of tiny robots working together to assemble these identical pieces in one place — a swifter and smoother approach.
  • The team has put together a new type of assembly system where small robots work collaboratively to build large, and sometimes complicated structures from small identical pieces.
