Bees have amazing cognitive capabilities. The scouts explore and learn the terrain and build up a highly detailed neuronal representation of the surrounding environment. Once back in the hive, locations are communicated to others by translating location information into body… Continue Reading
NeuroCopter is a joint project of the Biorobotics Lab and the Neuroinformatics group at Free University Berlin. Our goal is to control an autonomously flying robot with a brain simulation. We want to develop the neural control architecture for “high-level” tasks such as learning, memory and navigation.… Continue Reading
Suppose a school of fishes suddenly turns. Who initated this turn? Was this leading fish acting first because of the topology of the swarm, him being closest to the cue? Or do individuals exist with a higher probability of leading?… Continue Reading
Upon her return from a foraging flight a bee might behave quite strangely: she throws her body from side to side moving wildly over the comb surface. Others attend this performance and – after a little while – show up… Continue Reading
We are close to publishing a C++ framework for the development of computer vision tracking systems. Stay tuned!
