Cricket Visual Homing - my undergraduate dissertation
Crickets have previously shown the ability to locate a hidden cool spot in a heated arena [Wessnitzer et al., 2008]. A new paradigm was designed to replicated these results in which light levels were changed as the cricket moved across the arena. No learning effect was found, but the crickets had a significant preference for the quarter of the arena in the lights adjacent to the boundary. Three visual homing algorithms, Average Landmark Vector [Lambrinos et al., 1998], Warping [Franz et al., 1998] and Gradient Descent [Zeil et al., 2003] were implemented in four sets of images, three of which were captured within the cricket arena. A robotic implementation was also developed. It was found that the best performing was ALV but only with artificial landmarks. The consistently best performer was Gradient Descent, although Warping was not unsuccessful. Finally, the applicability of these findings as algorithms for crickets and robots was discussed.
The Last Jaffa Cake
While I was at university I did much student radio - here's a show I did with Steve. We had much banter, played some fun tunes, and (a highlight) interviewed Gordon McIntyre.
