Use the Neurorobotics Platform (NRP) developed in the HBP to connect spiking neural networks to virtual and real robots. This enables you to conduct embodiment experiments on our High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. All this can be either done through an easy to use web interface or locally on your machine. That way you can build brains for bodies and bodies for brains.
Read our Mission Statement here.
Run simulations from anywhere without any installation. Launch a simulation, edit the parameters and gain fascinating insights into the world of neurorobotics.
Choose from the predefined robot models and environments to then edit them and the brain models you use as controllers.
Use our high performance computing to your full advantage. Our clusters provide top of the line power through our web interface.
Since the platform runs in a browser, it is easily accessible from any device - be it a high-powered PC or a smartphone.
Use neural controllers to breathe life into one of our detailed 3D robot models or customize your own with our robot designer.
Connect your brain models to 3D bodies and let it explore one of our many simulation environments that you can customize with our environment designer.
Upload and share your experiments in our cloud. Everything is available on our website and right at your fingertips - from anywhere.
With a team of skilled researchers working relentlessly on driving the development, improvements and additional features will keep on coming.
The main focus of NRP's ongoing and future development is the implementation of user tools for designing custom experiments. This will enable experimenters to comfortably specify more sophisticated experiments with well-defined control flows, to select (and, to a certain extent, to create) virtual robots and environments, and to configure the connections between brain models and the embodiments.
