The study reveals a coordinated movement, similar to schools of fish. These “swimmers” promise a revolution in the field of medicine, especially for the treatment of bladder tumors. Their applications are very varied: from the identification of tumour cells, to the release of drugs in specific locations of the body.

Nanorobots show collective movements similar to those found in nature, such as birds flying in flocks, or the orderly patterns that schools of fish follow
