Toward the Evolution of Dynamical Neural Networks for Minimally Cognitive Behavior
TLDR
This paper sketches one such agent, and presents the results of preliminary experiments on the evolution of dynamical neural networks for visually-guided orientation, object discrimination and accurate pointing with a simple manipulator to objects appearing in its field of view. Expand

Fast and Incremental Method for Loop-Closure Detection Using Bags of Visual Words
TLDR
In robotic applications of visual simultaneous localization and mapping techniques, loop-closure detection and global localization are two issues that require the capacity to recognize a previously visited place from current camera measurements. Expand

Map-based navigation in mobile robots:: I. A review of localization strategies
TLDR
This article will review various models where such capacities are integrated within a framework highly important in the animat literature, i.e., that of navigation tasks. Expand

Visual topological SLAM and global localization
TLDR
We propose an extension of this work by integrating metrical information from robot odometry in the topological map, so as to obtain a globally consistent environment model. Expand
