Bristlebots being used for research at Harvard

A group of scientists and engineers at Harvard are using Bristlebots to study swarming behavior. They have published an article titled “Swarming, swirling and stasis in sequestered bristle-bots.” They have a couple of supplementary videos up on youtube as well. There’s a nice writeup of it at New Scientist, with a link to a full pdf at arxiv.org.

One thought on “Bristlebots being used for research at Harvard

  1. Aren’t bristlebots just inside out versions of those old football games where the board, marked as a 100 yard football field, vibrated, and the bristle bottomed football players fought their way across the field?
