Studies of primate locomotion have shown that the head and eyes are stabilized in space through the vestibulo-collic and vestibulo ocular reflexes (VCR, VOR). The VOR is a reflex eye movement control system that stabilizes the image on the retina of the eye during head movements in space. This stabilization helps maintain objects of interest approximately fixed on the retina during locomotion. In this paper we present the design and implementation of an artificial vestibular system, which… CONTINUE READING
