Sniffy Bug: A Fully Autonomous Swarm of Gas-Seeking Nano Quadcopters in Cluttered Environments

there's a dangerous gas leak in a building wouldn't it be great if we could send in robots to find the gas leak quickly and without endangering human lives we have developed the first autonomous swarm of tiny drones that is able to find gas leaks in.

Unknown cluttered environments their small size not only allows them to fly in narrow spaces but also makes them very safe usually it is very challenging to get such tiny drones to fly autonomously due to their small processing power and little memory.

To solve this problem our drones use a bio-inspired strategy in which they follow a few simple rules they start flying in a random direction for maximum exploration avoiding obstacles on the way if one of them smells gas it communicates with the other drones which will help to better localize the.

Source although each single drone is very limited working together as a swarm allows them to efficiently locate gas sources even in large areas such as industrial plants or residential buildings our work shows that a bio-inspired ai is an effective and simple way to tackle.
