STEP2DYNA, Lecture on 17 January 2018 , University of Newcastle, UK

You are all welcome to attend the STEP2DYNA, the Lecture on 17 January 2018, University of Newcastle, UK.

Summary:

The Holmes lecture, which belongs to a series of lectures provided by the Newcastle University for young students to expand their horizons and enthusiasm towards science, has attracted almost 150 young students ageing from 8-15 years old and some of there parents last week. The topic is about the functions and features of eyes and vison systems in animals especially in insects such as locust and praying mantis. Our robot Colias, who is equipped with a successful collision avoidance model inspired by one of the insect’s vision neurons, is an ideal platform to demonstrate the connections between biological findings in real insects and the development in computation science and technology.
