Social insects will teach robots how to function
December 13th, 2003

The Bio Tracking project at the Georgia Tech Institute is trying to track and model the movements of social insects with the goal to create algorithms that enable robots to work as a team. By studying the movement and interaction of bees and ants, the scientists expect to reverse engineer their collective logic and apply in software on simulators and actual robots. The results achieved so far will be presented this week (Dec. 16-17) at the II International Workshop on the Mathematics and Algorithms of Social Insects. Here’s a link to the workshop.
