HBP Neurorobotics Platform

The HBP Neurorobotics Platform is a set of software tools that allows you to test neural network models in sensory-motor tasks, by connecting them to virtual robots that operate in dynamic environments. The Neurorobotics Platform supports the full modelling workflow, from the design to the 3D visualization of in silico experiments. All features are documented and tutorial videos show how to get started and guide you through the different steps of setting up and running Neurorobotics experiments. The Neurorobotics Platform is developed together with the EU Flagship Human Brain Project.

The aim of the Blue Brain effort in neurorobotics is to understand the brain in its natural habitat – the body.  This is important for understanding development, learning and cognition. A key requirement is to create models of the mouse body, capable of providing realistic input to whole brain models and allowing evaluation of the output of such models, in terms of motor behavior.
