Caption: Locust vision robot. Migratory locust (Locusta migratoria) sitting on a version of the Khepera robot. This robot is designed to avoid collisions with looming objects, such as the coloured blocks in the background. The circuitry that it uses to do this is based upon studies of the locust nervous system. Photographed at the University of Newcastle, UK.
