This paper reports results of an investigation on the degree of influence of short-term memory mechanisms on the performance of neural classifiers when applied to robot navigation tasks. In particular, we deal with the well-known strategy of navigating by “wall-following”. For this purpose, four standard neural architectures (Logistic Perceptron, Multilayer Percep-tron, Mixture of Experts and Elman network) are used to associate different spatiotemporal sensory input patterns with four… CONTINUE READING
