Using FPGA for visuo-motor control with a silicon retina and a humanoid robot
- Conference Paper
The address-event representation (AER) is a neuromorphic communication protocol for transferring asynchronous events between VLSI chips. The event information is transferred using a high speed digital parallel bus. This paper present an experiment based on AER for visual sensing, processing and finally actuating a robot. The AER output of a silicon retina is processed by an AER filter implemented into a FPGA to produce a mimicking behaviour in a humanoid robot (The RoboSapiens V2). We have implemented the visual filter into the Spartan II FPGA of the USB-AER platform and the central pattern generator (CPG) into the Spartan 3 FPGA of the AER-Robot platform, both developed by authors.
