Insect-Inspired Robots Don’t Need GPS For Orientation

The ‘Brains on Board’ project is a collaboration between several British universities in partnership with the Human Brain Project and seeks to ‘translate’ the brains of ants and bees into algorithms that a machine will understand. Its aim is …

How a simple robotics model of mammal navigation is useful to interpret neurobiological recordings

Place recognition is a complex process involving idiothetic and allothetic information. In mammals, evidence suggests that visual information stemming from the temporal and parietal cortical areas (‘what’ and ‘where’ information) is merged at the level of the entorhinal cortex (EC) …

How to implement the visual processing module for pose calibration in RatSLAM?

In this report, I summarized some key methods for visual processing module in RatSLAM or RatSLAM-based System. There are more than six approaches as following. By comparing and doing some practical experiments, I think that the intensity scanline profile and
