Engineers believe that ordinary bees can help future robots to work more independently. Engineers from the British universities of Sussex and Sheffield say that the brain of bees - a unique computer to control insect sensory system on the basis of its mode of operation, you can create control computers for autonomous flying robots. In the development of the computer, operating on the principle of bee brain specialists invest about 1 million British pounds. Engineers say that a tiny insect brain helps autonomously flying insects fly and navigate in space. In their organization bee brain is many orders of human easier, but its intended function it performs great.
in the future based on the "bee algorithms" the researchers hope to develop a new generation of flying robots observer robot scouts robotv, videographers and others. In the longer term, experts hope to create robots that involve the ability of bees to analyze odors in space and identify a particular compound in the air, such as explosives or poison gas.
James Marshall of the University of Sheffield, said that his group is approaching the creation of working models that simulate the brain insect. According to Marshall, the creation of a model of the brain - is the main problem in artificial intelligence as a real brain, the way even the bee, has many neurons, and biological analyzers, cognitive systems, and other systems that are unconsciously use biological organisms, but are surprisingly difficult to recreate in a "figure." Previously, researchers have tried to recreate some of the functions of the brain monkey or even a person, but now experts want to create a simple, but the finished model. Experts say that such vision in bees, with the simplicity of their brain, color.
Moreover, the brain is able to recognize colors bees to three times faster than humans do. According to scientists, the sight of bees and bumble bees - it's pretty interesting tool: in general bees see the world in black and white colors (monochromatic vision), but some of the colors they are able to recognize and to do so they may very quickly.
