We are happy to invite everybody to:
Pawel Romanczuk (MPI für Physik komplexer Systeme):
“Active Brownian Particles – From Individual to Collective Stochastic Dynamics”
Abstract: We discuss the description of biological agents in terms of coupled stochastic differential equations. This approach offers on the one hand a very flexible framwork for modeling individual, as well as large groups of interacting agents, and on the other hand allows us to perform analytical calculations on the long time/large scale behavior of such systems, which provide important insights into their general properties. Here, we will focus on particular application of these kind of models to collective motion in locusts and corresponding interaction models based on so-called “escape-pursuit” interaction behaviors.
Location: Seminar Room 31 (Arnimallee 7)
The German TV show “Elektrischer Reporter” has featured the work of the Biorobotics Lab. Check it out!
On Wednesday, March 19, Tim will give a talk on complex animal group behavior. Most projects of the Biorobotics Lab will be covered too! Check out the website of the organizer of the event:
>> Biomimicry Germany
The event will take place at >> Betahaus.
The magazine Nautil.us has published an article on the general practise of using robots to investigate animal behavior. The article focuses on the great works of Jose Halloy and Thomas Schmickl but also mentions our work here at FU Berlin.

The German Channel “Deutsche Welle” is broadcasting a short report on RoboBee followed by an interview on Sunday, December 15th. It’s online already!
Thanks to Benni – again! – we have a new website for the Biorobotics Lab up and running.
