In the one-dimensional synchronisation task, discussed in , the final pattern consists of an oscillation between all 0s and all 1s. From an engineering point of view, this period-2 cycle may be considered a 1-bit counter. Building upon such an evolved CA, using a small number of different cellular clock rates, 2- and 3-bit counters can be constructed.
