Desert ants are extraordinary solitary navigators. Researchers were inspired by these ants as they designed AntBot,
the first walking robot that can explore its environment randomly and go home automatically, without GPS or mapping.
This work opens up new strategies for navigation in autonomous vehicles and robotics.

Watch the video about Antbot. It is in French, so set the subtitles to translate to English or Spanish, if you
don't understand French.
Human eyes are insensitive to polarized light and ultraviolet radiation, but that is
not the case for ants, who use it to locate themselves in space.
