Do you have the cockroach ? Tienen la cucaracha ? Using toys as a model system to study collective behaviours and active matter

Thomas Barois

Laboratoire Ondes et Matières d’Aquitaine (LOMA), Université de Bordeaux

In this talk, I’ll show some of the activities we have with robots-cafards that we use in different type of experiments. The robots are autonomous self-propelled elements of few-centimeter scale without further interactions than contact between particles and walls. By putting together the robots in environments with simple geometry, we obtain situations such as self-organisation, traffic jams, cell-like behaviour or spontaneous sorting.
