The researcher Federico Augugliaro, uploaded the following video, which depicts two drones that without remote control build a bridge of ropes, which is able to lift the weight of an adult. The whole thing is the result of extensive research of scientists and researchers from ETH Zurich University's Institute for Dynamics Systems and Control and Gramazio Kohler Research.

The drones know how to move in space, since the room is equipped with an advanced motion detection system, which sends and receives data via Wi-Fi on an algorithm which calculates and controls their precise movements.
