his thesis investigates Quincke induced collective motion. It is mostly a qualitative study, but it attempts to connect Quincke induced collective motion to the field of active matter as a whole. The thesis has two objectives. Firstly it shall attempt to create an system in which collective behaviour of Quincke rotors can be investigated. Secondly it attempts to gather qualitative data from this system, and compare it with relevant sources. It is concluded that the experiment is a partial success. The system used manages to produce living crystals, but deviates from other sources when dealing with vortex formation. Both are forms of collective behaviour.
