New neural circuits for robot phonotaxis

By Richard E. Reeve and Barbara H. Webb


W. Grey Walter built robotic systems to improve understanding of biological systems. In that tradition, this paper reports ongoing work on a robot model of cricket sound localization. The main advances are the inclusion of a much larger range of neuroethological detail, and the investigation of multimodal influences on the behaviour. The former allows exploration of the functionality of identified neurons in the insect, including the possible roles of multiple sensory fibres, mutually inhibitory connections, and brain neurons with pattern-filtering properties. The latter focuses on the inclusion of an optomotor stabilization response, and how this might improve tracking, particularly under conditions of random disturbance
