Novel swarm systems
Supervisor: Dr R Gross
This project is meant to design and study a novel swarm system in the widest sense. Such a system would ideally:
- advance technologies (e.g. decision making, construction, design, robotics, automation);
- enhance understanding of biological systems (e.g. bacteria, cells, flocking birds, social insects); or
- have an impact on society (arts, education etc).
The project could be purely theoretical, simulation based or practical. For example, it could focus on an advanced topic of bio-inspired artificial intelligence , such as behavioural systems, cellular systems, collective systems, developmental systems, evolutionary systems, immune systems, and neural systems.
The project will be carried out in the Natural Robotics Lab .

Prospective applicants should have a degree in a subject relevant to the project (applicants from all disciplines are highly encouraged to apply).
