Abstract
While navigating their environments it is essential for autonomous mobile robots to actively avoid collisions with obstacles. Flying insects perform this behavioural task with ease relying mainly on information the visual system provides. Here we implement a bioinspired collision avoidance algorithm based on the extraction of nearness information from visual motion on the hexapod walking robot platform HECTOR. The algorithm allows HECTOR to navigate cluttered environments while actively avoiding obstacles.
