We are developing neuromorphic motion chips which model the motion processing in the fly visual system. We have used the outputs of these chips in guiding the motion of a Koala robot. This platform can be used for developing insect-like sensori-motor models (e.g. optomotor response).
We are also collaborating with the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL (directed by Dario Floreano) in developing new motion chips for use on a microflyer. The students and staff on this project include Jean-Christophe Zufferey, Antoine Beyeler, and Adam Klaptocz at LIS; and Rico Moeckel at INI. This work is sponsored by the Swiss National Foundation.
