Brain-inspired navigation

iNavigate: Brain-inspired solutions for intelligent navigation and robotic mobility (Dec. 2019-Dec. 2023, Horizon 2020 - European Commission)

Neuro-Autonomy: Neuroscience-Inspired Perception, Navigation, and Spatial Awareness for Autonomous Robots (Sep. 2019-Sep. 2024, Boston University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, QUT, UNSW, etc.)

GridMap: Grid cells – From the brain to technical implementation (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Technische Universität München, University of Edinburgh)

NeuroSLAM: Emulating neural basis of brain’s 3D navigation and spatial cognition to develop new neuromorphic 3D SLAM and cognitive navigation (Dr. Fangwen Yu)

Brain and Neuroscience

Human Brain Project: Aims to put in place a cutting-edge research infrastructure that will allow scientific and industrial researchers to advance our knowledge in the fields of neuroscience, computing, and brain-related medicine.

Bio-inspired Robot

Brains on Board: Fuse computational and experimental neuroscience to develop a ground-breaking new class of highly efficient ‘brain on board’ robot controllers able to exhibit adaptive behaviour while running on powerful yet lightweight General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit hardware now emerging for the mobile devices market.

Basic Theory

Dynamic Field Theory: use attractor dynamics and their instabilities at three levels to generate movement trajectories, to generate goal-directed sequences of behaviors, and to derive task-relevant perceptual representations that support goal-directed behavior.
