Abstract
In the past decade, a large number of robots has been built that explicitely implemented biological navigation behaviours. We review these biomimetic approaches using a framework that allows for a common description of biological and technical navigation behaviour. The review shows that biomimetic systems make significant contributions to two fields of research: First, they provide a rigorous test of biological theories; second, they make new navigation mechanisms available for technical applications, most notably in the field of indoor robot navigation. While simpler, mostly insect-inspired navigation behaviours have been implemented quite successfully, the more complicated way-finding capabilities of vertebrates still pose a challenge to current systems.
