This Robot Has Managed To Solve A Maze Thanks To Circuits Similar To A “Brain”

1 Mins read

The best inventions of humanity were created by “copying” mother nature. Thus, in a new study published in Science Advances magazine, researchers emulated one of nature’s greatest “inventions” – the brain – by creating a sort of robot capable of solving a maze.

Researchers have developed a neuromorphic circuit that helps determine how the robot is turned, in a way similar to synapses between neurons in the human brain that strengthen their connections.

“Exactly like a synapse in the brain of a mouse that is strengthened every time it finds the right way in a maze, our device is tuned by applying a certain amount of electricity,” says the electric engineer Imke Krauhausen of Eindho

The robot built by experts took 16 attempts to find the way out of the maze. By building similar neuromorphic circuits, instead of software-based learning algorithms, researchers were able to reduce the demand for energy and the size of the robot. “This sensorial integration, in which sense and movement strengthen each other, is also the way nature operates and we tried to emulate it in our robot,” Krauhausen continues.

In future, systems like these could be used in a wide variety of ways as well as helping robots walk. Speaking of robots: this automaton has troubled the world of the web, while this robot is called LEONARDO and is Italian.
