Call for two pre-doctoral positions Underwater swarm robots.
Individuals guided by a single mind….
Schools of fish are enormous groups formed by thousands and thousands of individuals, moving in a perfectly coordinated and syntonic manner.
First of all, the correct association between individuals is carried out thanks to the visual, acoustic and chemical information exchanged between them. For example, sounds produced by vibration of the swim bladders or by the action of teeth, bones and fin rays help keep the group together.
