They communicate with each other and coordinate their actions and movements among each other.
The artificial ants thus demonstrate how autonomous individual components can solve a complex task together working as an overall networked system. In an abstract manner, this cooperative behaviour provides interesting approaches for the factory of tomorrow.
Future production systems will be founded on intelligent components, which adjust themselves flexibly to different production scenarios and thus take on tasks from a higher control level.
Even their production method is unique. The laser-sintered components are embellished with visible conductor structures in the 3D MID process. They thereby take on design and electrical functions at the same time.
In the actuator technology used in the legs, Festo utilises the benefits of piezo technology. Piezo elements can be controlled very precisely and quickly. They require little energy, are almost wear-resistant and do not need much space. Three trimorphic piezo-ceramic bending transducers, which serve both as an actuator and a design element, are therefore fitted into each thigh.
By deflecting the top bending transducer, the ant lifts its leg.
With the pair underneath, each leg can be exactly deflected forwards and backwards. Numerous components, technologies and functions are combined in each ant in the smallest of spaces The making of: What challenges faced the engineers when it came to developing these delicate technology platforms?

VERBAL VERSUS PICTORIAL REPRESENTATIONS IN THE QUANTITATIVE REASONING ABILITIES OF EARLY ELEMENTARY STUDENTS by Katrina Ashley Korb A thesis submitted in partial. Volume 8, No. 1, Art. 30 – January Issues in Learning About and Teaching Qualitative Research Methods and Methodology in the Social Sciences.
Franz Breuer & Margrit Schreier. Abstract: For many qualitative researchers in the social sciences, learning about and teaching qualitative research methods and methodology raises a number of questions. The Cooperative Laboratory Study Program (COLABS) is a research-oriented and graduate-level program.
COLABS provides international graduate students with opportunities to take part in scientific research trainings in English to increase their abilities which will lead them into new discoveries through unique science activities.

For the first time, the cooperative behaviour of the creatures is also transferred to the world of technology using complex control algorithms.
