Research highlight: Collective behavior of circle walkers

May 5, 2023

Programmable robotic functionality on the microscale is a grand challenge. While each unit is limited in its computational capabilities, collectives often show robust behavior that can be explained and modeled by statistical physics. In this publication we show that (basically unavoidable) diversity in such collectives is not necessarily an imperfection but can be exploited to improve their performance.
