Joseph has finished his thesis and made huge progress with the interactive behaviors. This video shows the implementations of Couzin et al.’s model of swarm formation (2002).
We have finished the design and construction of a smaller prototype.
It is based on an Arduino, comes with Wifi and an awesome control program. Thanks to: Christoph, Hai, Michel, Henrik and Joseph!
