This video provides an introduction and overview of the robot mapping and navigation system RatSLAM. RatSLAM is based on computational models of the rodent hippocampus, the part of the rat brain thought to be heavily involved in navigation.
The primary creators of the RatSLAM system are myself and Gordon Wyeth, both currently at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.
A new open source implementation, OpenRatSLAM, is available here:
along with a detailed tutorial journal article in Autonomous Robots:
