Abstract

MIRTO is a new, inexpensive, open-source robot. The specification, the necessary libraries, and sample code are freely available. It has been used to teach undergraduate students programming and as an extensible base platform for students engineering robots. While it is typically programmed in traditional programming languages, it has also been driven by simulated neurons; point neurons have been used to follow a line. Since neurons are the basis of animal cognition, using them as the basis of a cognitive architecture is a promising idea. The neural MIRTO line following system can be extended into a larger more cognitive neural agent as a way forward in neural cognitive architectures.
