Abstract
Through some research on visual navigation mechanisms of flying insects especially honeybees, a novel navigation algorithm integrating entropy flow with Kalman filter has been introduced in this paper. Concepts of entropy image and entropy flow are also introduced, which can characterize topographic features and measure changes of the image respectively. To characterize texture feature and spatial distribution of an image, a new concept of contrast entropy image has been presented in this paper. Applying the contrast entropy image to the navigation algorithm to test its’ performance of navigation and comparing with simulation results of intensity entropy image, a conclusion that contrast entropy image performs better and more robust in navigation has been made.
