This might be asking a lot, but I'm in need of some more (I guess, "meatier" chunks of) information regarding a project from Reading University on a Rat Brain controlled robot. (Professor Kevin Warwick talks about it a lot)
The information I've been able to find seem to be grouped around the 14th of August 2008. Surely there's something more recent on this project..?
Basically it's a robot that has ultrasonic sensors to detects walls etc, which communicates to 300,000+ cultured rat neurons via Bluetooth.
The neurons/brain makes all the "decisions" for the robot.
These are the links I've managed to find thus far:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7559150.stmhttp://neurobonkers.com/2011/05/06/kevin-warwick-and-the-rat-brain-robots-descend-on-bristol/http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-10017283-71.htmlhttp://www.techtree.com/India/News/Rats_Brain_Powers_Robot/551-92147-547.html
youtube.com/watch?v=1QPiF4-iu6g - isn't the same robot, but is created by the same guy (Professor Kevin Warwick)http://www.technovelgy.com/ct/Science-Fiction-News.asp?NewsNum=2352
- About the robot in the link above.http://robotics.usc.edu/~maja/publications/sab90-2.pdf
- Not about a specific robot, and not from Reading University. Talks about navigation & building cognitive mapping.
All of them (first grouping of links) give very similar information, but with a tiny bit more here & there.
I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other links/resources, or even any specifics from this project.
Before anyone says "This sounds like homework
Yes, it is. Which is why I've supplied everything I've managed to find so far, to prove I'm not
just looking for a "free ride" type deal
Much thanks in advance,
I removed the http://www
from the youtube links so they wouldn't embed seeing as how it'd embed all four.
