The use of resistive grids for parallel analogue computation was firist suggested by Horn in the mid-seventies, and has more recently been exploited successfully by Carver Mead and his co-workers at Caltech, for example for building silicon models of the retina. We have extended the range of applications of resistive grids to include the task of robot path planing. The overall aim of the project is to develop an autonomous mobile robot capable of real-time navigation in a 2-D environment. This paper describes the work which has been performed on the path-planning component of the project.
