Abstract
For local navigation in the vicinity of nests or food sources, insects of several species rely on visual landmarks. An extremely parsimonious description of these navigation abilities is provided by the recently developed average landmark vector (ALV) model. The ALV model is an instance of a parameter-based navigation method: instead of keeping in mind an image of the scene surrounding the target location, only two real-valued parameters are extracted from the image and stored. TO gain insights into the neural architecture that could implement the ALV model in an insect brain, and to test the operation of the model in the real world, a robot equipped with a fully analog implementation of the ALV model was built in different landmark configurations.
