This presentation deals with the modelling of the perception by the electric sense. The work has been realized in the context of the european project ANGELS. The goal of the project is to build an eel-like robot equipped with the electric sense and capable to split into several agents for exploration and recognition purposes. In this paper we present more specifically one model that we built for our sensors. The model is analytical and consists in replacing the real electrodes by calibrated charged spheres. We will show that the predictions are found to be in very good agreement with both the experiment and the simulator.
