Talking Robots: Barbara Webb

Posted 31 Oct 2006 at 05:17 UTC by steve Share This

The latest episode of the Talking Robots podcast is out. This time they interview Barbara Webb, head of the Cricket Lab at University of Edinburgh. Webb is doing research in the field of biorobotics, "studying how to make robots that emulate or simulate biological organisms computationally and physically." In particular Webb has been working on a robot model of the auditory localization behavior of the cricket. See the Phonotaxis project page for more information. Other projects at the cricket lab include biomorphic wind sensing, an optical flow system based on the fly's optomotor system, and a legged locomotion model based on walking stick insects.
