Abstract : This paper presents a neuromorphic robot using stereo-olfaction and a sniffing system based on nonselective chemosensors that mimic the animal behavior of tracking a specific odor. In order to be able to go toward an odor source, two tasks must be performed : 1 estimation of the gas-concentration gradient and 2 gas recognition independent of the intensity. It is shown how these two tasks can be implemented with artificial spiking neurons in a biologically inspired approach.
