 The insect robotics group at the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour is directed by Dr Barbara Webb. We research and model the sensorimotor capabilities of insects. This ranges from simple reflexive behaviours such as the phonotaxis of crickets, to more complex capabilities such as multimodal integration, navigation and learning. We carry out behavioural experiments on insects, but principally work on computational models of the underlying neural mechanisms, which are often embedded on robot hardware. To find out more, look at some of our projects, our recent publications, the homepages of people in the lab, or contact us directly.




 Jul 2008: We have now moved to the new Informatics Forum.
 Apr 2008: We started a new EPSRC project: Multimodal and context-dependent learning.
