Novelty Detection for Robot Neotaxis

  title={Novelty Detection for Robot Neotaxis},
  author={Stephen R. Marsland and Ulrich Nehmzow and Jonathan L. Shapiro},
The ability of a robot to detect and respond to changes in its environment is potentially very useful , as it draws attention to new and potentially important features. We describe an algorithm for learning to filter out previously experienced stimuli to allow further concentration on novel features. The algorithm uses a model of habituation, a biological process which causes a decrement in response with repeated presentation. Experiments with a mobile robot are presented in which the robot… CONTINUE READING
