Arizona State University is working on a system whereby a person can mentally control a swarm of robots. This is done through a 128 sensor EEG cap
and computers to interpret the commands. The research project is limited to around four bots right now. They can be quadcopters and/or ground bots
right now. They want to increase the level of collaboration.
The potential for this to become something important is pretty obvious. What's more, if more advanced behaviors could be coded into the bots and the
mental commands are just sent to trigger their initiation, then the potential could be even greater. Fly formation with my fighter. Then bot A, peel
off and dog fight the MiG. Etc.
