Path-planning microswimmers can swim efficiently in turbulent flows

3 Oct 2019Jaya Kumar AlageshanAkhilesh Kumar VermaJérémie BecRahul Pandit

We develop an adversarial-reinforcement learning scheme for microswimmers in statistically homogeneous and isotropic turbulent fluid flows, in both two (2D) and three dimensions (3D). We show that this scheme allows microswimmers to find non-trivial paths, which enable them to reach a target on average in less time than a na\"ive microswimmer, which tries, at any instant of time and at a given position in space, to swim in the direction of the target...
