Biomimetic Visual Navigation


Visual navigation is something that almost all animals do exceedingly well and something that robots are exceedingly poor at replicating. We are using principles of biologically inspired engineering in an attempt to utilize what we have learned about how organisms use visual information to perceive and navigate in the world around them to develop a system that will enable robots to be more successful in the same.

Our current test platform is the highly modified radio-controlled car shown at top left, but we are hoping to test some of our high-speed algorithms on a flying platform in the near future. Stay tuned!
