Description of and animations from a Braitenberg vehicle simulator (based on the book Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology). Movements of a Braitenberg vehicle with different connections between its sensors and motors. For the left-to-left/right-to-right connections the vehicle turns . PDF | Braitenberg vehicles have attracted many students to work in robotics because of their apparent simplicity as control mechanisms.

This project aims to simulate some primitive robots which are given the name “Braitenberg Vehicles”after first being stated in Vehicles: Extended braitenberg architectures [ permanent dead link ].

Yet the resulting behaviour may appear complex or even intelligent. Braienberg download links to a ZIP file. To sum up, in the first part of the book there are 14 vehicle models improving one-by-one and in the vehhicles part, real systems of living things are resembled with the vehicles in the book, calling Biological Notes on Braitenbeerg Vehicles.

Finally we have a vehicle, robot or creature; that escapes from hot places but always stays at places full of oxygen, tries to destroy light bulbs and likes organic matters. After a time, when Vehicle7 senses a red vehicle, it will understand that it is aggressive and immediately try to excape.

AI Lecture: Braitenberg Vehicles

Furthermore, he deals with the anatomy of the nervous system, which leads him to write his revolutionary book Vehicles. This paper presents the first joint theoretical and comprehensive analysis of the behaviour of Braitenberg vehicles 2 and 3. But this venicles we will come up with a third model, Vehicle3c.


Converse is true, when an brairenberg blue or green vehicle comes, it will see it red, convincing us that this creature is making generalizations.

This behavior might be understood by a human observer as a creature that is ‘alive’ like an insect and ‘restless’, never stopping in vehiclds movement. The simplest braitenbreg to do that is to reverse, in other words, now our vehicles will move slower when they sense more.

But of course these all eight sensors should not sense the same environment variable. For the reason that he considers animal brains as “pieces of computing machinery”, he had created the world of vehicles like they were veicles animals in their own nature.

These threshold device complexes will be used to make vehicles’ brains from now on. The vehicle will not be interested in the source untill it passes the threshold value, which makes the vehicle seem like it make decisions about the environment. Braitenberg vehicle Dynamical system Robot.

Braitenberg vehicle – Wikipedia

The first vehicle has one sensor e. And yet we know very well that there is nothing in these vehicles that we have not put in ourselves. For example, if all aggressive vehicles are painted red, then when each time Vehicle7 sees an aggressive red vehicle, sensor of red-vehicle and threshold device of aggressive-vehicle will be activated at the same time, decreasing the resistance of Mnemotrix between “aggressive-vehicle” and “red-vehicle”. Their characters are quite opposite.


The agent has the same two venicles and right symmetric sensors e. In vehicle4 brand of robots, the graph of the function is like a hill, having a maximum speed in avarage light, decelerating when light changes positively or negatively. In this case, the agents move away from the dark and towards the light.


The ones that fall from the bfaitenberg looses the life-game, so we only take from table in the rate of fallen ones. Showing of 18 references.

Vehicle3a loves the source in a permenant way, that it can’t take its eyes from the light. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. What makes it special is, having a very high resistance at first, its resistance begins to fall when two end of it, is subject to current at the same time.

The activation of a certain sensor will make the corresponding motor run faster but only up to a point, where the speed of the motor reaches a maximum. Of course it is nonsense to compare a world including only creatures with the real one.

It obeys the following rule:. Also, their behaviour changes by influence of alternating luminance of light.
