Here is a fully autonomous swarm of gas-seeking nano quadcopters that can operate in cluttered environments. They use a bio-inspired bug algorithm (Sniffy Bug) to get it done. As MAVLab TU Delft researchers explain, lightweight Crazyflie drones were used for this experiment.
These drones can avoid obstacles, explore their environment and detect gas. They coordinate to localize the source.
