Swarm behaviours arise from the interaction between agents and their environment. By controlling the environment of nanoparticles or bacteria, we aim to engineer their swarm behaviours. This will require the design of a tiny swarm arena that can fit under the microscope and enable fine spatial temporal control of chemical, energy, or tactile signals in the environment.
