The first running robot to move without GPS – ScienceDaily

Desert ants are extraordinary loners. Researchers drew inspiration from these ants when they developed AntBot, the first walk-in robot that could accidentally explore its surroundings and automatically go home without GPS or mapping. This work opens new strategies for navigation in autonomous vehicles and in robotics. The human eye is insensitive to polarized light and ultraviolet radiation, but this is …
