Since the birth of nanotechnology, it has never been a single field technology. It is more preferably called “nanotechnologies,” as refers to a set of methods and approaches in physics and chemistry science, engineering fields, biologic and medical areas.

Such indirect form of communication found in social insects is known as stigmergy. In 1959, Pierre-Paul Grasse made observations on termite building behaviour and used this term to describe task coordination and construction regulation in termites [28]. Grasse explained that the workers were guided by the construction [42]; individual worker deposits a chunk of material that stimulates the same worker or any other workers nearby to respond and deposit more material [28]. In general, stigmergy describes the indirect communication among individuals through the environment [27]; one individual modifies the environment, and the other individuals respond to the changed state of the environment leading to collaborative behaviours as seen in ants, termites, and other social insects.
