These are some of the smaller projects and codes developed through the years by lab members. Some stem out of research project codes, others are personal projects, some are done for friends and some are just fun.

Zombie Boids

This code is based on similar swarming behaviour principles used by particle swarm optimizers such as ALPSO. The program simulates a zombie attack on a flock of humans. Humans can pick up guns scattered over the map and become hunters which can kill the zombies. Experiment with different initial numbers of zombies and guns to find what conditions allow the humans to survive. Alternatively, watch the zombies devour a defenceless pack of humans.

Note that the code requires numpy and TK.
