Insect Robotics Group
We research and model the sensorimotor capabilities of insects. This ranges from simple reflexive behaviours such as the phonotaxis of crickets, to more complex capabilities such as multimodal integration, navigation and learning. We carry out behavioural experiments on insects, but principally work on computational models of the underlying neural mechanisms, which are often embedded on robot hardware.

The purpose of this work was to develop a flying robot that can navigate using a bee-inspired visual route following approach. To this end we performed several missions in which an aerial robot with an onboard camera and ...
