Insect-inspired AI for autonomous robots.
TLDR
It is argued that inspiration from insect intelligence is a promising alternative to classic methods in robotics for the artificial intelligence needed for the autonomy of small, mobile robots and that even for neuromorphic processors, one should not simply apply existing AI algorithms but exploit insights from natural insect intelligence to get maximally efficient AI for robot autonomy.

Wireless steerable vision for live insects and insect-scale robots
TLDR
A fully wireless, power-autonomous, mechanically steerable vision system that imitates insect head motion in a form factor small enough to mount on the back of a live beetle or a similarly sized terrestrial robot is reported.
Active estimation of distance in a robotic system that replicates human eye movement
Active vision
TLDR
It is proved that an active observer can solve basic vision problems in a much more efficient way than a passive one, and a general methodology is introduced, a general framework in which low-level vision problems should be addressed.
The role of fixation in visual motion analysis
TLDR
This article finds that an active observer can solve the problems of 3-D motion estimation, egomotion recovery, and estimation of time-to-contact in a very efficient manner, using as input the spatiotemporal derivatives of the image-intensity function (or normal flow).
Revisiting active perception
TLDR
It is argued that those contributions are as relevant today as they were decades ago and, with the state of modern computational tools, are poised to find new life in the robotic perception systems of the next decade.
Active perception
Active perception (active vision specifically) is defined as a study of modeling and control strategies for perception. Local methods are distinguished from global models by their extent of
Active Vision
TLDR
Sometimes, reading is very boring and it will take long time starting from getting the book and start reading, but in modern era, you can take the developing technology by utilizing the internet and search for the book that is needed.
Active scene recognition with vision and language
TLDR
A novel approach to utilizing high level knowledge for the problem of scene recognition in an active vision framework, which is called active scene recognition, by implementing an interaction between a reasoning module and a sensory module.
Eye movements in natural behavior
A 128 128 120 dB 15 s Latency Asynchronous Temporal Contrast Vision Sensor
TLDR
This silicon retina provides an attractive combination of characteristics for low-latency dynamic vision under uncontrolled illumination with low post-processing requirements by providing high pixel bandwidth, wide dynamic range, and precisely timed sparse digital output.
