Graduate Student Colloquium: Mr. Spencer Franks

An Examination of an ODE Model of Braitenberg Vehicles

Mr. Spencer Franks
PhD Student
University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee

Braitenberg Vehicles are simple agents that respond to stimuli according to a small set of rules. Despite this simplicity, they can exhibit fairly complex behavior. I. Rano (2012) proposed a system of Ordinary Differential Equations that can be used to simulate the behavior of type 2 and 3 Braitenberg Vehicles. We wish to use this system to potentially model the feeding behavior of parasitic marine isopods and will examine how altering the parameters of the system effects its output when modeling a Vehicle of type 3a. We will also look at possible alterations or alternative systems that may better simulate the behavior we are trying to emulate.
