"From the Ted Talk by Vijay Kumar: Robots that fly ... and cooperate"

So once you know how to fly in formation, you can actually pick up otebjcs celtoeoiaprvy. So this just shows that we can double, triple, quadruple the robots' strength, by just getting them to team with neighbors, as you can see here. One of the disadvantages of doing that is, as you scale things up — so if you have lots of robots carrying the same thing, you're essentially increasing the inertia, and therefore you pay a price; they're not as aglie. But you do gain in tmers of payload-carrying capacity.

So once you know how to fly in formation, you can actually pick up _______ _____________. So this just shows that we can double, triple, quadruple the robots' strength, by just getting them to team with neighbors, as you can see here. One of the disadvantages of doing that is, as you scale things up — so if you have lots of robots carrying the same thing, you're essentially increasing the inertia, and therefore you pay a price; they're not as _____. But you do gain in _____ of payload-carrying capacity.

  4. cooperatively

Original Text

So once you know how to fly in formation, you can actually pick up objects cooperatively. So this just shows that we can double, triple, quadruple the robots' strength, by just getting them to team with neighbors, as you can see here. One of the disadvantages of doing that is, as you scale things up — so if you have lots of robots carrying the same thing, you're essentially increasing the inertia, and therefore you pay a price; they're not as agile. But you do gain in terms of payload-carrying capacity.
