Doing your dirty work for you
The idea of horde/cloud robots is not exactly new. I can remember positing the notion of doing building surveys by taking along a suitcase full of micro robots, letting a cloud of them loose in the building and plotting their search-n-hit data as a 3D model on your laptop. Land and site surveys too. Don't tell the client that it takes ten minutes and charge 'em a mint.
