neural network
A mathematical model of the nervous system found in humans and animals. Applications in such areas as character recognition and shape recognition have produced noteworthy results.
 domestic robots
Robots that would live with and assist people in everyday tasks. Issues such as safety and control mechanisms are among the R&D challenges in this field, in contrast to industrial robotics.
 Central Pattern Generator (CPG)
A neural-oscillator system that combines multiple neural oscillators, similar to features found in earthworms and lampreys. A new type of neural network used in engineering.
 neural oscillator
Part of the central nervous system that is found in vertebrates and believed to generate a periodic rhythm.
 Numerical Perturbation Method (NP)
A method of analysis used to approximate nonlinear functions that are difficult to analyze. Long used to calculate satellite orbits, this technique has more recently been applied to fluid dynamics and quantum dynamics. The numerical perturbation method uses a computer to numerically process perturbations.
