robots basal ganglia spiking neuron networks behavior selection
To improve the robot intelligence,the spiking neuron network model of basal ganglia’s behavior selection is constructed,and its selection ability is demonstrated through simulation experiments.This behavior selection module is embedded in the behavior-based robot control architecture and applied to robot control.The experimental results demonstrate that the robot governed by the basal ganglia behavior selection module can select proper behaviors to run.
