A Situated and Embodied Model of Ant Route Navigation

Andrew Philippides, Bart Baddeley, Phil Husbands, Paul Graham

Abstract (Excerpt)

This abstract summarises a model of route navigation inspired by the behaviour of ants presented fully in Baddeley et al. (2012). The ant's embodiment coupled with an innate scanning behaviour means that robust route navigation can be achieved by a parsimonious biologically plausible algorithm.
