This paper argues that for those neuronal systems which control behaviour, reliable responses are more appropriate than precise responses. We illustrate this argument using a mobile robot controlled by the responses of a neuronal model of the locust LGMD system, a visual system which responds to looming objects. Our experiments show that although the responses of the model LGMD vary widely as the robot approaches obstacles, they still trigger avoidance responses. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
