This is the circuit for a phototropic walking robot insect which follows light.
It's based on M.Tilden's work, BEAM robotics: it's about analog control circuits (microcores) that simulate neural and nervous networks present in the in the real insects' spinal cord; these react to external stimuli in a robust and very reliable way. Many other circuits have been drawn to do things like follow light, sense obstacles and reverse motors.
Of course this works just for walkers for the moment.
here comes my project: a BEAM autopilot!
It will be based on conversion of digital data coming from sensors, GPS to analog current levels, that will be inputted to control circuitries like the one above. The outputs will then be reconverted to digital for actuating servos and so on. I haven't still drawn nor calculated anything.
This is just a newborn concept, now I'd like to hear opinions of feasibility from experts in electronics I'm such a stinky newbie!
Thanks to everyone who will give me some thoughts!!
