The RatSLAM system can perform vision based SLAM using a computational model of the rodent hippocampus. When the number of pose cells used to represent space in RatSLAM is reduced, artifacts are introduced that hinder its use for goal directed navigation. This paper describes a new component for the RatSLAM system called an experience map, which provides a coherent representation for goal directed navigation. Results are presented for two sets of real world experiments, including comparison with the original goal memory system's performance in the same environment. Preliminary results are also presented demonstrating the ability of the experience map to adapt to simple short term changes in the environment.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
