This thesis explores two aspects of biologically inspired methods for place recognition, a key component of navigation. The first key theme is to explore the multi-scale mapping principles inspired by the recent discovery of overlapping, multi-scale spatial maps in the rodent brain, while the second develops biologically inspired Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) for place recognition. We presented a series of studies comprehensively demonstrating for the first time how both a rodent brain-inspired multi-scale mapping system and CNN-based techniques enable state of the art place recognition performance.

Search Google Scholar™

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
