In other news: I'd like to write a survey article on autonomous nanorobotics.

Surprisingly, I have found much literature on nanotechnology, with rampant speculation on the role of nanorobotics. I've also found quite a bit on massively multi-agent systems as one aspect of the copious literature on autonomous robotics. I just haven't found much on both. Nanorobotics really has to be autonomous, if you think about it: communication takes quite a bit of energy and isn't well suited to organic or other insulation.

Any ideas?
