In our research project “NeuroCopter” we study the honeybee brain while the animal is navigating. We attach living honeybees to a quadcopter, fly over known or unknown terrain, and observe the bee’s behavior and brain activity. This is our first… Continue Reading
The German radio show “IQ – Wissenschaft und Forschung”(Bayern2) broadcasted a full 30-minutes radio feature on NeuroRobotics. The story features our project NeuroRover and generally makes a case for using robots in neuroscience, or using neuronal computation for controlling robots. Some FU-Berliners… Continue Reading
NeuroCopter gets a full-page article in the German newspaper “Tagesspiegel” (August 23rd 2014). It is available online here: http://www.fu-berlin.de/presse/publikationen/tsp/2014/ts_20140823/tagesspiegel-20140823-31-gps-mit-insektenhirn/index.html#content Thanks to Ben and Adam for flying the machine!
The German TV show “Elektrischer Reporter” has featured the work of the Biorobotics Lab. Check it out!

In an article published February 14th, KurweilAI.net reports on our IEEE/EMBS Neural Enginieering paper. http://www.kurzweilai.net/robots-with-insect-brains
Our exclusive lab photographer Jon took some marvellous shots of NeuroRover, our small tank robot that uses honeybee brain structures to learn its environment. [Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”1″ gal_title=”Jon_photos_feb2014″]
On Thursday, February 6th, Martin was speaking on RBB’s Kulturradio about the NeuroRover and NeuroRobotics in general. Tune in: Kulturradio Website Listen to MP3
In a related project “NeuroRover”, we use spiking neural networks to control small robots. The robot’s brain, inspired by neural structures found in the honeybee, enables the machine to dynamically learn its environment and approach landmarks of interest – similar to… Continue Reading
