  author={Qinbing Fu and Cheng Hu and Pengcheng Liu and Shigang Yue},
Insects have tiny brains but complicated visual systems for motion perception. A handful of insect visual neurons have been computationally modeled and successfully applied for robotics. How different neurons collaborate on motion perception, is an open question to date. In this paper, we propose a novel embedded vision system in autonomous micro-robots, to recognize motion patterns in dynamic robot scenes. Here, the basic motion patterns are categorized into movements of looming (proximity…

Principles of visual motion detection

Reactive direction control for a mobile robot: a locust-like control of escape direction emerges when a bilateral pair of model locust visual neurons are integrated

Khepera robots equipped with normal and panoramic cameras and using ‘randomised winner-take-all’ or ‘steering wheel’ algorithms for LGMD model integration could escape an approaching threat in real time and with a similar distribution of escape directions as real locusts.

LGMD and DSNs neural networks integration for collision predication

An integrated collision predication system is proposed based on neural subsystems inspired from Lobula giant movement detector and directional selective neurons which focus on different part of the visual field separately which can detect hazardous situations that had been difficult for single subsystem only.
