Exploring Internal Simulations of Perception in a Mobile Robot using Abstractions
University of Skövde, School of Humanities and Informatics.
2004 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates the possibilities of explaining higher cognition as internal simulations of perception and action at an abstract level. Relatively recent findings in both neuroscience and psychology indicates that both perception and action can be internally simulated by activating sensory and motor areas in the brain in absence of sensory input and without any resulting overt behavior. An investigation was conducted in order to test the hypothesis that perception can be simulated in a mobile robot using abstractions. The result from this investigation showed that this was indeed the case but that the accuracy was limited. The simulations allowed the robot to anticipate long chains of future situations but were not good enough to support any overt behavior. To further improve the results there is a need for better training techniques and/or a more complex architecture.
