Here's a presentation I gave (for my Intro to Adaptive Systems course) of birds flocking together while following some simple but decentralized rules. Apart from following the simple rules of Separation, Cohesion and Alignment, I've also added some goal tending influences so that the organisms tend towards the circular object. All the code and simulation was run on Matlab using some slightly modified code from Conrad's pseudocode for boids (http://www.vergenet.net/~conrad/boids/pseudocode.html).

Boids: Modeling and Understandingemergent behaviorSudeep Pillai

Background
Natural and often seen, yet so intriguing
o
Discrete birds, but an overall fluidic motion
o
Magnificent synchronized behaviors
Each bird dependent on each other
o
Based on local perception, they control themselves
o
No awareness of global perspective
o
Seems like a distributed control
o
Is it intentional??
 
Formations
o
Classic “Flying V” formation
 –
Reduce overall drag force as compared to flying alone
 –
Upwash produces free lift allowing lower angle of attack
 –
Lead bird
 –
Two flanking birds dissipate downwash
Intentional flocking
