Digital Simulation of a system made of 4 strut tensegrity component systems, with actuators attached to the global system, leading to a combination of individual and collective behaviour. The optimization is lead by parameters of exposure (light entering the system) and angle of incidence (of each face on the surface), and fitness criteria are variable.
