Although biomimetic autonomous robotics relies on the massively parallel architecture of the brain, a key issue for designers is to temporally organize behaviour. The distributed representation of the sensory information has to be coherently processed to generate relevant actions. In the visuomotor domain, we propose here a model of visual exploration of a scene by the means of localized computations in neural populations whose architecture allows the emergence of a coherent behaviour of… CONTINUE READING
