About this book

This book describes the development of a robot mapping and navigation system inspired by models of the neural mechanisms underlying spatial navigation in the rodent hippocampus. Computational models of animal navigation systems have traditionally had limited performance when implemented on robots. The aim of the work was to determine the extent to which hippocampal models can be used to provide a robot with functional mapping and navigation capabilities in real world environments. The focus of the research was on achieving practical robot performance, rather than maintaining biological plausibility.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is written for researchers, graduate students, and professionals in robotics, especially robot navigation and computational neuroscience. The hippocampus has been studied extensively in rodents as part of the brain system responsible for navigation and spatial memory … .” (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 30, April, 2010)
