Abstract

Artemia larvae may show swarming organization under the presence of a light spot, while being insensitive to several other external stimuli. In this paper, the dynamics of the Artemia population in response to this kind of stimuli has been exploited to design a robot moving inside the water and able to lead the direction of the group. The robot therefore implements external leadership, by driving the Artemia population along a set of desired trajectories. Experimental results and simulations based on a model of Artemia motion confirmed the suitability of the approach. Keywords Robotics · Collective dynamics
