Neuromorphic tactile/vibration processing
In this workgroup, we would like to explore/apply time-based computation for/to tactile processing.
We intend to develop a prototype of event-based vibration measurements units and use it to transform any surface into a tactile surface.
Sound propagation, and more specifically time-of-arrival difference of a pulse will allow us to triangulate the pulse origin, thus enabling tactile monitoring.
As found in the literature, we may take inspiration from mechanism of target localization in the scorpion [Brownell & Farley, 1979b].
We aim to provide the workgroup participants with working hardware (piezzoelectric sensors, attached to a microcontroler that generates spikes) to record a small database, and then think about how to optimally do the triangulation, and maybe think about a neural implementation of this.
Axis of development :
- Synchrony of delayed lines
- Time-based analysis
- Learning time constants by means of structural plasticity mechanisms
