Abstract(s)Due to their relatively simple nervous system, insects are an excellent way through which we can investigate how visual information is acquired and processed in order to trigger specific behaviours, as flight stabilization, flying speed adaptation, collision avoidance responses, among others. From the behaviours previously mentioned, we are particularly interested in visually evoked collision avoidance responses. These behaviors are, by necessity, fast and robust, making them excellent systems to study the neural basis of behavior. On the other hand, artificial collision avoidance is a complex task, in which the algorithms used need to be fast to process the captured data and then perform real time decisions. Consequently, neurorobotic models may provide a foundation for the development of more effective and autonomous devices.
