Computer modelling of the human eye, the brain of a rat and a robot could revolutionize advances in neuroscience and new technology, says a QUT leading robotics researcher.

Dr Michael Milford from QUT’s Science and Engineering Faculty says the new study uses new computer algorithms to enable robots to navigate intelligently, unrestricted by high-density buildings or tunnels.

“This is a very Frankenstein type of project,” Dr Milford said. . . . Read Complete Report
