GFSW04 - Form in art, toys and games

Bristlebots are very simple small robots that are commercialized under different names as toys for children (and adults). They seem to have inspired many youtubers. In a joint work with E. Climent, F. Plouraboue and O. Praud from Toulouse fluid mechanics lab IMFT , G. Dimarco from Ferrara and my former student T. B. N Mac, we have studied the dynamics of swarms of bristlebots confined in a disk and an annulus. The talk will report on the experimental and modelling results and will feature some live experiments.
