For example, in your design, you could have your microcontroller analyze all of your data while having your neural net perform speed critical reflex-like operations — such as cutting the power to the motor if your robot is about to drive off of a cliff.

I hope you enjoyed this follow-up to our first discussion of neural nets and that — in addition to providing some useful information to your knowledge base — it also inspired you to try integrating a neural net into your next robotics project.

For more information on neural nets, check your favorite search engine and the comp.ai.neural-nets group at http:// groups.google.com I'll post all errata, updates, and follow-ups relating to any of my neural net articles at www.fuzzy muzzle.com so be sure to check it out if you find anything quirky. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to Email me.

In the meantime, be on the watch for opportunities to implement neural nets in your robotics projects. SV
