In the field of active matter, we want to investigate particles that achieve in emergence complicated task although they have only limited intelligence and capabilities. In other word the task is to investigate how primitive the particles and it's rules can be to still accomplish a given task. This research aims to give an idea on how complicated at least the functionality and construction of a micro robot need to be. There the task of favor is to group up and move, rotate, transport obstacles or navigate to a destination. Other contexts of the research are to be found in swarm of bacteria, fish or even birds.
