Abstract

Current robot systems are often equipped with control mechanisms that are based on predefined action sequences. For a humanoid robot to survive and be useful in a changing environment, however, action control must interact with perceptual processes. Integration of perceptual features and sensorimotor action features seems necessary. This project will focus on the neurocognitive basis of this integration, covering aspects as saliency, top-down attention modulation and novelty detection. The target platform for implementation is a humanoid cognitive robot.
