It’s Child’s play!

We’ve already had lots of under 5’s taking an interest in our robots at this year’s Festival of Science. A little overawed by the robot/nobot wall, many of our younger visitors soon got the hang of the light-following robots which proves that even pre-schoolers can understand the simple behaviours of these Breitenberg bots. Robot scientists for the future perhaps?!

Two very different robots one heading towards the light the other running away from it. It’s hard to believe that
these complex behaviours can emerge from two simple connections.
