Traffic and sensors
Many systems in nature and industry consist of a myriad of parts that act together following complex and often self-organised patterns of interactions.
Swarms of animals, human societies, or companies in a complex supply networks are only some of such complex systems. The collective dynamics group addresses the question how system-level function and phenomena arise from the interplay of parts in these systems.
