Path Finding: Behavior of Artificial Neural Network


To travel from one location to another is a common task for most human beings. Actually creating a robot to find a path to the destination while avoiding obstacles is another task. The behavior of an artificial neural network is synthesized mimicking the decisions leading to a path. a two-layer network using a simplified model of a biological network (i.e. brain is used).
