Brain Inspired Control Systems for Self Driving Vehicles DOD Funded Research Led by Boston University's Team of International Scientists The US Department of Defense has funded $7.5 million to an international team of experts in neuroscience, robotics, computer vision, algorithms and control systems to develop the next generation in autonomous driving. The focus is precision control systems and they are utilizing neuroscience to make this happen.  The team is led by a leading expert at Boston University.  For a great news blog on this, go to Important Innovations Collection: Bioinspired Control Systems for Self-Driving Vehic... : New Autonomous Paradigm on the Ground, Underwater, in the Air - Based on Brain Research Source:  Stock Image of the Brain Boston Univ...

Schools of Robot Fish

Bioinspired Robots that Mimic Fish Zebrafish Fish Tech Tale Scientists at New York University have developed  bioinspired robot fish.  The robots "see" and imitate the movements of fish in real time.  The purpose is to get a better understanding of marine life. What's Different - 2-Way Interaction in 3D Scientists have used biomimetic robots to better understand animal behavior.  Until now, it's been 1-dimensional.  The animals observe and respond to the robots.  NYU has created a system for 2-way interaction in 3 dimensions. Latest Tech The NYU team uses the latest in real-time tracking software and robotics.  They've created the 1st closed loop control system with a robot zebrafish interacting in 3D with a live zebrafish. Findings The live fish accepts its robot replica with no signs of fear or anxiety.  The scientists say this system gives them a new baseline for research.  They can measure the fish's responses in real-time and allow the ro
