A-Bees See: A Simulation to Assess Social Bee Visual Attention During Complex Search Tasks
Advances in Artificial Life, ECAL 2013
Foraging bees often search in complex natural environments for "target" flowers that they have learnt provide nectar rewards. To maximise efficiency, bees must avoid landing on "distractor" flowers that do not offer rewards, as this potentially wastes time and energy. This paper reports on artificial-life inspired agent-based simulations of two contrasting approaches different bee species use to scan for targets in a scene containing many flowers. The two scanning approaches simulated are adoi:10.7551/978-0-262-31709-2-ch042 dblp:conf/ecal/BukovacDD13 fatcat:pfirkojh7vagbfdmg6lv3lmfoi
