LEURRE – robots that fool roaches

These little bots make cockroaches believe that they’re one of them, at least that’s what the roaches want us to believe –

LEURRE will propose a modeling protocol to be applied to the calculus of emergence in mixed-societies and study its properties. Its goal is similar to research in collective intelligence or self-organization, namely to understand how phenomena at one level of biological organization (here social) emerge from the properties of lower-level units (individual behavior). Having determined the pathways of information flow among the units and their behavioral rules, analytical and numerical models enable to predict the properties of the mixed society.

LEURRE is mainly concerned with the dynamics and the emergence of collective patterns. We consider three types of entities: the animals, the robots and the chemical/physical variables (e. g. pheromone, sound, building material, resource, shelter,. . . ).
The robots and animals (the autonomous agents) are characterized by their position, orientation, activity and internal state (e.g. a physiological variable, memory,…).
