Summary Giving robots the ability to autonomously move around in various real-world environments has been a major goal of AI (artificial intelligence) for quite some time. To this end it is vital for robots to be able to perceive their surroundings in 3D; they must be able to estimate the range of obstacles in their path.

Animals navigate through various uncontrolled environments with seemingly little effort. Flying insects, especially, are quite adept at manoeuvring in complex, unpredictable and possibly hostile and hazardous environments.

In this paper it is shown that very simple motion cues, inspired by the visual navigation of flying insects, can be used to provide a mobile robot with the ability to successfully traverse a corridor environment. Equipping an autonomous mobile robot with the ability to successfully navigate real-word environments (in real-time) constitutes a major challenge for AI and robotics. It is in this area that insect based navigation has something to offer.
