This tutorial will build up on the "The IQR real-time large-scale simulation environment" tutorial, making IQR its basic tool. During this session, some neuromorphic robotic systems will be introduced and the attendant will use IQR to design neuromorphic systems to control external devices.
In particular, this session will consist of a number of guided exercises that will show how to quickly build neural networks that can process sensory input from video cameras or robots (www.e-puck.org). Thus, some basic models for behavior regulation, such as Braitemberg vehicles, will be constructed.
At the end, the participant will have the opportunity to explore and design his/her own neural model based on the different systems and building blocks learned during the exercises.
