A Lightweight, Inexpensive Robotic System for Insect Vision

Abstract Designing hardware for miniaturized robotics which mimics the capabilities of flying insects is of interest, because they share similar constraints (i.e. small size, low weight, and low energy consumption). Research in this area aims to enable robots with similarly efficient flight and cognitive abilities. Visual processing is important to flying insects’ impressive flight capabilities, [...]

The “Brains on Board” EPSRC Programme Grant had its official Kick-Off Meeting on 14 March, 2017.

For the first time, researchers from four major UK research centres are coming together with their academic and industrial collaborators in London to talk about how they can create neuromorphic controllers with the capabilities of a honeybee. Researchers from the universities of Sheffield, Sussex, and Queen Mary presented their facilities, tools, software, and robots to [...]
