Tiny robots, the size of an A4 sheet, are being programmed to lift cars that are up to two tonnes in weight.

Working together, these creepy machines are able to sneak up unnoticed and silently remove their target from the scene.

The robots, collectively called Avert, are the creation of a European consortium led by the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece.

A ‘Autonomous Multi-Robot System for Vehicle Extraction and Transportation’ (Avert) computer first selects a vehicle to be moved after cameras have mapping the area in detail.

The Avert system then works by sending a deployment unit to scan the area again and identify new potential obstacles.

Once this has been done, bogies deploy from the depolyment unit and are tracked to a target vehicle, where they dock onto the wheels and lift the car.
