Assistant Professor Timothy Horiuchi (ECE/ISR) is the Principal Investigator for a new Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) grant. Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad ( href="http://www.ece.umd.edu/">ECE/ISR) is co-PI. The three-year, $286,000 grant is for "Neuromorphic VSLI-Based Bat Echolocation for Micro-Aerial Vehicle Guidance." This grant will fund research in the development of VLSI implementations of neural processing found in the brainstem and midbrain of the echolocating bat. The chips will provide real-time, low-power sensing and will be tested on flying micro-aerial vehicles for collision avoidance and maintaining elevation in forest-like environments.
