Reconstructed Attractors (IMAGE) Tokyo Institute of Technology Caption As a function of the light intensity, the dynamics of each sensor node could change from periodic (weak illumination) to markedly chaotic (strong illumination). Reconstruction of the temporal trajectory of the signal (known as attractors) revealed a characteristic snail-like shape, which was similar among the physically-realized boards, and boards thus allowed synchronization to arise between them.
