Russian Brain Installed in Navy Sub

Posted 18 May 2004 at 16:13 UTC by steve Share This

A Russian-designed neural controller that emulates the olivo-cerebellar motor control system of the human brain has been installed in a US Navy autonomous research vehicle according to a recent new release from the Office of Naval Research. The Olivo-cerebellar cluster-based universal control system, or UCS, was developed by engineers at Russia's Nizhny Novgorod State University and Rodolfo LlinĂ¡s of NYU. They described the controller as a "weakly chaotic system" of neurons. The Navy hopes the controller will allow unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) to complete complex maneuvers more quickly and smoothly than traditional control systems. Tests of the robot sub will begin this summer at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center
