Insect behaviour has been a rich source of inspiration for the field of robotics as the perception and navigation problems encountered by autonomous robots are faced also by insects. In this paper, we introduce a research platform, the Insectbot, that was built as a testbed for new biologically-inspired, vision-based algorithms and systems. The Insectbot is a groundbased robot but it is capable of simulating conditions of free flight. It is a robust testbed for flight navigation algorithms that...[Show more]
