A team of University of Tennessee students and an Oak Ridge National Laboratory researcher have created a robot with a brain. The vehicle — affectionately named Neon — looks like a cross between a Roomba and Disney-Pixar’s “Wall-E.”
It is capable of navigating a space while avoiding obstacles by sensing objects and then changing directions to avoid bumping into them.
The University’s neuromorphic research group created the bot as a step toward new drone technology for the Air Force.
