Welcome to the Artificial Anthill

Welcome to the web site of the anthill open project, an artificial world of ants. Our aim is to make a program that simulate the complex behaviour of an anthill from simple behaviour of individual ants.

An open project

While we would like to point out that this project was initiated by members of a non-profit association D2SET we intend to release the code under LGPL (Lesser Gnu Public Licence) or GPL (Gnu Public Licence) depending on possible parternship with other projects released under these licences.
Feel free to contact us for any remark, request of information or if you wish to join us.

  • From Download page you can download, pictures, movies, sources and documentation.
  • Links page try to list a maximum of links about ants concerning science, simulation but also education and literature.
  • Contact page lists all the way to get informed: e-mail, mailing-lists, postal adress.
