NJIT Biology Professor's Research on Robotic Swarms Cited in Science Publication

Simon Garnier

Assistant Professor of Biology Simon Garnier's research on robotic swarms was cited in an article about using robots to understand animal behavior in the October 1, 2013 issue of The Scientist. Garnier, an expert in animal behavior, has been recently featured in several major media outlets for his work on bio-inspired robotic swarms. He joined NJIT as part of its cross-disciplinary faculty initiative and has created the Swarm Lab, an interdisciplinary research lab that studies the mechanisms underlying the coordination of large animal groups, such as ant colonies or human crowds, and their applications to complex problems such the organization of pedestrian traffic or the control of robotic swarms.
