Reynolds numbers exhibit dramatic influence on directionality of movement of self-propelled systems

Self-propelled artificial objects are at the current forefront of research. We demonstrate here that the motion directionality of millimetre sized self-propelled objects is highly dependent on the Reynolds numbers (Re) of the systems, with emphasis on the "intermediate" Re region (1-600). Our findings have strong implication on the motion controllability and predictability of these independent self-propelled systems.
