In the aggregation of granular particles caused by the motion of the sweeping front, percolation occurs in the universality class of two dimensions due to a change in the particle concentration corresponding to the occupation ratio. The collective motion of the granular particles is described as the process of self-avoiding invasion percolation. The cluster structure of the aggregated granular particles exhibits a scaling property in a wide range of the particle concentration.
