The only way to achieve true swarm intelligence is by breaking away from the ubiquitous master-slave architecture.
Swarm Technology's strategically important issued patents define plug-and-play intent-based autonomy and heterogeneous interoperability in swarm robotics.
Our research and development efforts in IoT devices, robotics, and distributed computing have yielded a significant and growing global patent portfolio.

PROBLEMS THAT WE SOLVE
Is it possible to perform dynamically scalable distributed processing using heterogeneous processors?
Current solutions allow distributed processing using heterogeneous processors, but are not dynamically scalable.
Is it possible to build swarm-intelligent robots that allow limitless scalability and endless resiliency?
Another approach uses a central computer which allows some coordination, but lacks limitless scalability and endless resiliency. See Intel's Drone Show.
We have modeled social insect collective intelligence into an architecture and algorithm that we named
Solidarity Cell Architecture.
The patented Solidarity Cell Architecture enables dynamic-scalable heterogeneous distributed computing, collective intelligence, and intent-based automation at scale with limitless scalability and endless resiliency.
More specifically, this architecture operates using the five principles of swarm intelligence:
Swarm Technology is the first company in the world to design, to demonstrate, and to obtain a patent on a scalable architecture that provides robots and IoT devices with swarm intelligence.
