Swarm robots instead of conventional solution?

I’ve been considering using a bunch of smaller robots working together instead of using one big robot. Has anyone here done that? If so tell us about it, would be interesting.

I’m currently working on a tracked robot arm pretty much, I’m thinking I could accomplish the same job with small strong winch robots and a smaller portable arm that could climb to the heights needed somehow.

Might not work though, just thinking about it, what do you guys think, is it possible/worth it? How might it be done?
