Biologically Plausible Methods for Robot Visual Homing By

  title={Biologically Plausible Methods for Robot Visual Homing By},
  author={Andrew Vardy},
This thesis concerns visual homing in robots and proposes solutions judged by both performance and biological plausibility. Visual homing is the ability to return to a goal from a nearby location using vision. Biological plausibility is defined as the likelihood that a proposed algorithm mirrors the internal mechanism of an animal solving the same problem. The high effectiveness of insect homing motivates interest in biological plausibility. The approach to biological plausibility is through… CONTINUE READING
