A neurocomputational model of goal-directed navigation in insect-inspired embodied agents, Front. Neurorobot.

A model of neural mechanisms in a modular closed-loop control—enabling vector navigation in artificial agents is presented. The model consists of a path integration mechanism, reward-modulated global learning, random search, and action selection.
