A few days ago we uploaded a manuscript on our new vision system for the decoding of honeybee dances to arxiv. Promptly, MIT Technology Review publishes an article on it: https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608796/machine-vision-decodes-honeybee-waggle-dances/
We have sent Julian on a trip to Mexico with our collaborators Jens Krause, David Bierbach and Pawel Romanczuk who were studying the collective dynamics of an endemic fish species. Julian, our drone pilot in Project NeuroCopter, used our DJI… Continue Reading
Tim here. The DLD conference is a top-notch place to meet in digital economy. I was invited to speak about RoboBee in a panel called “Bee inspired”. It was hosted by the great Michael John Gorman, the founding director of… Continue Reading
Our master student Jakob Mischek just finished his work on our tracking system which just got way better. Check out the video and his thesis (in German). The new system was made possible by an improved upstream process, the detection and decoding… Continue Reading
Our team member Leon Sixt has developed a new image processing component for the decoding of bee markers. The method is based on convolutional neural networks, the current state of the art in computer vision. ConvNets are awesome, however, they need… Continue Reading
Get a drink and a bowl of popcorn. As of now you can watch our bees live! We are launching a new website featuring a live preview of our honeybee colony full of individually marked bees. Check back regularly, we… Continue Reading
Our new paper “RoboFish: increased acceptance of interactive robotic fish with realistic eyes and natural motion patterns by live Trinidadian guppies” just got published in Bioinspiration and Biomimetics!
The german radio channel “Die Durchblicker” has interviewed David researching on fish personality using the Robofish-System. The german article can be viewed here: Fische mit Persönlichkeit – Verhaltensforschung mit Guppys
Fernando gave a talk on our BeesBook project at the 1st Biotech Convention in Hamburg!
