Abstract [en]

In this thesis, the ocking behaviour of prey when threatened by a group

of predators, is investigated using dynamical systems. By implementing the

unicycle model, a simulation is created using Simulink and Matlab. A set of

forces are set up to describe the state of the prey, that in turn determines

their behaviour in dierent scenarios. An eective strategy is found so all

members of the ock can survive the predator attack, taking into account

the advantages of the predator's greater translational velocity and the prey's

higher angular velocity. Multiple obstacles and an energy constraint are

added to make the model more realistic. The objective of this thesis is to

develop a strategy that maximizes the chance of survival of each ock member

by not only staying together in a group but also making use of environmental

advantages.
