Retired Robots
The Ants: A Community of Microrobots
The Ants are a community of cubic-inch microrobots at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab . There are two main goals for this project. The first is to push the limits of microrobotics by integrating many sensors and actuators into a small package. The second is to form a structured robotic community from the interactions of many simple individuals. The inspiration behind this idea comes from nature the ant colony. In order to accomplish these goals, the robots have been equipped with sensors and actuators designed with their natural counterparts in mind. Each robot has 17 sensors including; four light sensors, four IR (infrared) receivers, bump sensors, food sensors, and a tilt sensor. They communicate with each other using two IR emitters, one mounted on the front of the robot and one mounted on the top. There are several levels of social behavior before reaching the goal of the ant colony. Right now, the robots can play Follow the Leader, Tag and Manhunt . Manhunt is similar to tag except there are two teams. The final game before the full-fledged Ant Farm is Capture the Flag. There are many application for robotic communities, including

Explanations of what ants are capable of doing along with some ant facts. Features picture diagrams Category Kids and Teens School Time Invertebrates Insects ants......BEHAVIOR OF REAL ants. Consider the following figure in which ants aremoving on a straight line which connects a food source to the nest
It is well-known that the main means used by ants to form and maintain the line is a pheromone trail. Ants deposit a certain amount of pheromone while walking, and each ant probabilistically prefers to follow a direction rich in pheromone rather than a poorer one. This elementary behavior of real ants can be used to explain how they can find the shortest path which reconnects a broken line after the sudden appearance of an unexpected obstacle has interrupted the initial path (see next figure). In fact, once the obstacle has appeared, those ants which are just in front of the obstacle cannot continue to follow the pheromone trail and therefore they have to choose between turning right or left. In this situation we can expect half the ants to choose to turn right and the other half to turn left. The very same situation can be found on the other side of the obstacle (see next figure). It is interesting to note that those ants which choose, by chance, the shorter path around the obstacle will more rapidly reconstitute the interrupted pheromone trail compared to those which choose the longer path. Hence, the shorter path will receive a higher amount of pheromone in the time unit and this will in turn cause a higher number of ants to choose the shorter path. Due to this positive feedback (autocatalytic) process, very soon all the ants will choose the shorter path (see next figure). The most interesting aspect of this autocatalytic process is that finding the shortest path around the obstacle seems to be an emergent property of the interaction between the obstacle shape and ants distributed behavior: Although all ants move at approximately the same speed and deposit a pheromone trail at approximately the same rate, it is a fact that it takes longer to contour obstacles on their longer side than on their shorter side which makes the pheromone trail accumulate quicker on the shorter side. It is the ants preference for higher pheromone trail levels which makes this accumulation still quicker on the shorter path.

Conference email address: Call for papers in pdf (0.2 MB) and postscript (1.3 MB) format. NEW General information about Brussels and Accomodations in Brussels is available here The behavior of social insects in general, and of ants living in colonies in particular, has since long time fascinated researchers in ethology and animal behavior, who have proposed many models to explain their capabilities.
Recently, ant algorithms have been proposed as a novel computational approach that replaces the traditional emphasis on control, preprogramming, and centralization with designs featuring autonomy, emergence, and distributed functioning. These designs are proving flexible and robust, able to adapt quickly to changing environments and to continue functioning even when individual elements fail.
A particularly successful research direction in ant algorithms, known as " Ant Colony Optimization is dedicated to their application to discrete optimization problems. Ant Colony Optimization has been applied successfully to a large number of difficult combinatorial problems like the quadratic assignment and the traveling salesman problems, to routing in telecommunications networks, scheduling, and other problems.
ANTS'2000 is the second edition of the only event entirely devoted to ant algorithms and to Ant Colony Optimization . Of great interest to the workshop are also models of real ant colonies organization and functioning which could stimulate new algorithmic approaches.

Generalized Ants
This is some supplementary material to the paper Further Travels with My Ant by David Gale, Jim Propp Scott Sutherland , and Serge Troubetzkoy , which appears in the Summer 1995 issue of the Mathematical Intelligencer . In this paper, the some behavior of a cellular automaton called an "ant" is discussed. The ant moves about, and in each "cell", the ant turns right or left, depending on the the state of the cell, and then changes the state of the cell according to certain prescribed rule strings.
Briefly, an "ant" moves around on an infinite checkerboard, each square of which we refer to as a "cell". Each cell in the plane is labeled as either an L -cell or an R -cell (usually, one fills the plane with L -cells to start). The ant starts out on the boundary between two cells, and as it passes through each cell, it makes a 90 degree turn, turning to the left in L -cells and to the right in R -cells, and it changes the state of the cell it just left, switching L -cells to R -cells, and vice versa. Following this simple set of rules gives rise to some rather complicated behavior; the pattern of the ant's track alternates between apparent chaos and symmetry, and eventually it starts to build a "highway" moving off in a single direction. The above described ant (and some variations) was originally studied by Chris Langton (then at the Santa Fe Institute , more recently a co-founder of the Swarm Corporation ). Later, Jim Propp generalized the ant by considering each cell to be in one of

11. All About Ants
Learn all about ants, how they live and ant anatomy.
All About Ants Ants have been living on the Earth for more than 100 million years and can be found almost anywhere on the planet. It is estimated that there are about 20,000 different species of ants. For this reason ants have been called Earth's most successful species. Ants build many different types of homes. Many ants build simple little mounds out of dirt or sand. Other ants use small sticks mixed with dirt and sand to make a stronger mound that offers protection from rain. Western Harvester ants make a small mound on top, but then tunnel up to 15 feet straight down to hibernate during winter. Ant mounds consist of many chambers connected by tunnels. Different chambers are used for nurseries, food storage, and resting places for the worker ants. Some ants live in wood like termites. Army ants don't make a home at all but travel in large groups searching for food. Sociology: Ants are social insects, which means they live in large colonies or groups. Some colonies consist of millions of ants. There are three types of ants in each species, the queen, the sterile female workers, and males. The male ants only serve one purpose, to mate with future queen ants and do not live very long. The queen grows to adulthood, mates, and then spends the rest of her life laying eggs. A colony may have only one queen, or there may be many queens depending on the species. Ants go through four stages of development: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Anatomy: Ants have three main parts. The head, the trunk(middle section), and the rear or metasoma. All six legs are attached to the trunk. The head consists of the jaws, eyes, and antennae. The eyes of ants are made up of many lenses enabling them to see movement very well. The antennae are special organs of smell, touch, taste, and hearing. The metasoma contains the stomach and rectum. Many species of ants have poison sacks and/or stingers in the end of the metasoma for defense against their many predators. To see a diagram and learn more about ant anatomy visit our

INTRODUCTION RESULTS ACKNOWLEDGMENTS ... FORMICINAE ABSTRACT A total of 113 species of ants is recorded by county from the state of Michigan. The list is based upon literature records and specimens in the authors' collections and those of the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology and the Michigan State University Department of Entomology. The list includes 3 species in Ponerinae, 44 in Myrmicinae, 6 in Dolichoderinae, and 60 in Formicinae. Ten species represent new state records. Five distribution patterns are evident: statewide (39 species), southern counties only (5), southern 3/4th of Lower Peninsula (10), Lower Peninsula (17), and Upper Peninsula (2). Forty species have been collected too infrequently to determine the distribution within the state.

When I spray the ants, they just move. How can I kill them? When an ant colony can't be located, use a poison bait. The toxicant is passed throughout the colony, killing the queen and all worker ants. Do carpenter ants eat wood? No. Carpenter ants will tunnel into wood, usually soft decaying wood to make their nests. I have a large carpenter ant, but both ends of its body are black, and the middle is red or orange. What kind of ant is this? Sounds like Florida carpenter ants. They are just a different color than regular carpenter ants. Use the same treatment you would for regular carpenter ants. Over this past weekend I noticed that my yard had hundreds of what appeared to be dark-colored, white-winged ants coming out of the ground and flying away. Most of the ant holes had lots of smaller ants without wings around them. It has been wet for about a week now and Saturday was a very humid and sunny day. After it rained that night, these insects were gone and I haven't seen a one since. Does this sound like ants? My home is being treated by a termite service with a Sentracon System and has been under treatment over the last 6 months. Any answers you can provide, or products you could recommend would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

Biology and Habits
Carpenter ants, vary in size and color but are usually large (1/4-1/2 inch) and blackish. Occasionally, swarms of winged carpenter ant reproductives will emerge inside a home. Carpenter ant swarms usually occur in the spring and are a sure sign that a colony is nesting somewhere inside the structure.
