AntNav.org is a website dedicated to the study of ants and their amazing navigational abilities.  Hungry foragers are sent out in search of food which they must bring home to share with their sisters as quickly as possible.  Individual ants do this amazingly well over long distances in deserts, schrublands and even rain forests. What is even more impressive is that many species navigate using their eyes rather than chemical trails.  Not only do we want to understand the animal itself from a biological perspective but also wish to use what we have learned to build better robots able to navigate in similarly complex worlds.

As well as providing news and information on all things ant navigation, this website will host real scientific datasets that is free for everyone to download and use (see terms and conditions).  We hope that by sharing our passion, knowledge and data we can unravel the secrets of these amazing creatures together.
