Towards Visually-Guided Neuromorphic Robots
Welcome to the Beobot Project!
Beobots are autonomous robots whose brains are standard Linux clusters of computers which run real-time neuromorphic vision algorithms.
Just like Beowulf Clusters have revolutionized the world of high-performance computing, replacing costly and slowly-evolving custom supercomputer hardware by assemblies of inexpensive, mass-produced personal computers, we hope that Beobots (a Beowulf cluster on a mobile robot) will lead the way towards a new generation of robotics systems that are inexpensive, rapidly evolving, built from standard mass-produced components, and armed with sufficient computational power to run real-time neuromorphic vision algorithms.
