Behaviour as in animal populations can be implemented not only in computer simulations but also in simple robots. Our group is demonstrating experimentally that mixed societies of insects and robots can co-operate and self-organize based on the behavioural algorithms used by insects. Moreover, through the use of artificial agents it should be possible to trigger and control arising patterns in animal groups.
