A massive intruder in a homogeneously driven granular fluid, in dilute configurations, performs a memory-less Brownian motion with drag and temperature simply related to the average density and temperature of the fluid. At volume fraction ∼10–50% the intruder’s velocity correlates with the local fluid velocity field: such situation is approximately described by a system of coupled linear Langevin equations equivalent to a generalized Brownian motion with memory. Here one may verify the breakdown of the Fluctuation-Dissipation relation and the presence of a net entropy flux -from the fluid to the intruder- whose fluctuations satisfy the Fluctuation Relation.
