A robot prepared for self-awareness: Expanded software architecture for walking robot Hector
A year ago, researchers showed that their software endowed the walking robot Hector with a simple form of consciousness. Their new research goes one step further: they have now developed a software architecture that could enable Hector to see himself as others see him. "With this, he would have (...)
