Behavior of the Artificial Slime Mould Model and Its Application

  • We propose an artificial slime mould model (ASMM) inspired by the plasmodium of Physarum polucephalum (P. polucephalum). ASMM consists of plural slimes, and each slime shares energy via a tube with neighboring slimes. Outer slimes sense their environment and conform to it. Outer slimes periodically transmit information about their surrounding environment via a contraction wave to inner slimes. Thus, ASMM shows how slimes can sense a better environment even if that environment is not adjacent to the slimes. The slimes subsequently can move in the direction of an attractant.
