Dr Andrew King's sheepdog research reported widely in the press

Research conducted by Dr Andrew King shows that sheepdogs use just two simple rules to round up large herds of sheep - to collect the sheep when they’re dispersed and drive them forward when they’re aggregated. The findings could lead to the development of robots that can gather and herd livestock, crowd control techniques, or new methods to clean up the environment.
