Using Brain without spiking neurons network?


#1

Hi
I’m Marco and I’d like to use the platform to make an experiment without using spiking neurons in the brain.
Essentially I need to create a connectionist network and link it to the robot. Is it possible in NRP?
Does exist any template of it ?

Thank you
Marco

Hi Marco,

Remember to tag your NRP-related posts with Neurorobotics to make sure you get a reply :wink:

Yes it is possible to control a robot on the NRP without spiking networks. The workaround is to still have a brain file which does nothing. The transfer functions can have their own logic independently of the brain.

You can find an example of this in the experiment Benchmark Pioneer P3DX experiment

Cheers,
Jacques

Hi Marco,

to add to the answer from jacques, you can use tensorflow in a transfer function.
