Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A platform capable of movement from one point to another under remote control has been designed for use in behavior studies. Electrical and mechanical design criterion for the platform are discussed, and schematics and engineering drawings are included. The primary application was to study communication between Glaucous-winged gulls. Other applications for the platform (as in predator-prey studies and dispersal of birds from aerodromes) are suggested.
