Role within the project:
The LARICS team from the University of Zagreb plays two important roles on the ASSISIbf team. In the first part of the project, we will develop the hardware and software for the “Honeybee interaction arena”. Developed in tight collaboration with the honeybee experts from UNIGRAZ, this novel platform for etiological experimentation aims to be a real-time, adaptive “interpeter” for the language of honeybees. In the second part of the project, we will use this ability to “talk to bees” for exploring the features that make honeybee societies so robust and efficient, and adapting those features for use in technical systems.
