Abstract:Self-organising structures are a dominant feature of experimental mobile robots built in our "Really Useful Robots" project. This paper continues where [Nehmzow and Smithers 90] finished. It explains some initial experiments using self-organising feature maps, and how those maps can be used by a mobile robot to recognise locations in its environment. This location recognition capability is achieved without using sensory information. Instead information derived from the motor actions of the robot is used, and shown to be sufficient.
