Spatial Navigation in Rodents and Robots

How do rodents navigate? And can we apply these principles to robots? During this workgroup we will first look at the latest models for grid cells, place cells, and goal-directed navigation in rodents. We will have an in-depth discussion about the plausibility of these models, and about their stability with respect to real world inputs, for instance from a robotic platform. We will then proceed to frame the models in a neuromorphic context, especially with distributed processing. Finally, and given enough interest, we may use the models to drive small robots towards a goal location without prior knowledge of the environment.
