Ich werde die soziale Reaktionsfähigkeit eines interaktiven biomimetischen Roboters („Robofish“) variieren und das Folgeverhalten von lebenden Guppys quantifizieren.Mein Ansatz soll empirische Daten liefern um aktuelle theoretische Modelle zukollektivem Verhalten und insbesondere Führungsverhalten bei Tieren zu beurteilen
