Drones as 3D printers: An international research group used a swarm of such autonomous flying robots to print structures from a custom-designed cementitious material. A team led by Stefan Leutenegger, Professor of Machine Learning in Robotics at TUM, ensured that the drones could perform the necessary precise flight maneuvers. Vijay M.
