Animals in nature have other ways of communicating than humans, and many of them are able to move collectively in packs called swarms. Host Danni Washington takes a look at how today’s scientists are studying this swarm behavior to make better robots that will help in factories, to collect things on other planets, and to make better autonomous cars. Part of the "Nature Knows Best" series.
