Drawing Homeostats

About

In this class we will learn about the homeostat and the mobile homeostat, and how to implement them

  • The Homeostat — in the 1st part we recreate the homeostat by Ross Ashby in code.
  • The Mobile Homeostat — in the 2nd part we create a drawing machine based on Ashby's Homeostat.

Goals

  • Basics of oscillators, synchronisation, and homeostasis
  • Basics of modelling complex systems
  • Programming a drawing-agent based on the ideas of homeostasis and meta-stability
