Fuzzy classifier system architectures for mobile robotics: An experimental comparison (2007)
Journal Article
Carse, B., Pipe, A. G., Pipe, A. G., & Carse, B. (2007). Fuzzy classifier system architectures for mobile robotics: An experimental comparison. International Journal of Intelligent Systems, 22(9), 993-1019. https://doi.org/10.1002/int.20235

We present an experimental comparison between two approaches to optimization of the rules for a fuzzy controller. More specifically, the problem is autonomous acquisition of an "investigative" obstacle avoidance competency for a mobile robot. We repo...

Implementing spiking neural networks for real-time signal-processing and control applications: A model-validated FPGA approach (2007)
Journal Article
Nibouche, M., Melhuish, C., Pipe, A. G., Pearson, M. J., Pearson, M., Pipe, A. G., …Nibouche, M. (2007). Implementing spiking neural networks for real-time signal-processing and control applications: A model-validated FPGA approach. IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, 18(5), 1472-1487. https://doi.org/10.1109/TNN.2007.891203

In this paper, we present two versions of a hardware processing architecture for modeling large networks of leaky-integrate-and-fire (LIF) neurons; the second version provides performance enhancing features relative to the first. Both versions of the... Read More about Implementing spiking neural networks for real-time signal-processing and control applications: A model-validated FPGA approach.

Whiskerbot: A robotic active touch system modeled on the rat whisker sensory system (2007)
Journal Article
Pearson, M. J., Pearson, M., Pipe, A. G., Melhuish, C., Mitchinson, B., & Prescott, T. J. (2007). Whiskerbot: A robotic active touch system modeled on the rat whisker sensory system. Adaptive Behavior, 15(3), 223-240. https://doi.org/10.1177/1059712307082089

The Whiskerbot project is a collaborative project between robotics engineers, computational neuroscientists and ethologists, aiming to build a biologically inspired robotic implementation of the rodent whisker sensory system. The morphology and mecha... Read More about Whiskerbot: A robotic active touch system modeled on the rat whisker sensory system.
