Psychologically Inspired Sensory-Motor Development in Early Robot Learning

Mark Lee, Qinggang Meng

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present an implementation of a model of very early sensory-motor development, guided by results from developmental psychology. Behavioural acquisition and growth is demon- strated through constraint-lifting mechanisms initiated by global state variables. The results show how staged competence can be shaped by qualitative behaviour changes produced by anatomical, computational and maturational constraints.
