Abstract : This work describes the development of a testbed which combines a subsumption architecture approach with neural network processing of tactile information in a reflexive behavior feasibility study. An overview of the tactile sensor, the neural network processor, and subsumption architecture is provided along with a plan for integrating these components into a single system. By incorporating local (reflexive) processing capabilities within a robot gripper, an additional layer of control is attained without an increased computing burden being placed on the system controller.... Neural network processor, Subsumption architecture.
