A RAM-based neural network is being developed for a mobile robot controlled by a simple microprocessor system. Conventional neural networks often require a powerful and sophisticated computer system. Training a multi-layer neural network requires repeated presentation of training data, which often results in very long learning time. The goal for this paper is to demonstrate that RAM-based neural networks are a suitable choice for embedded applications with few computational resources. This functionality is demonstrated in a simple robot powered by an 8051 microcontroller with 512 bytes of RAM. The RAM-based neural network allows the robot to detect and avoid obstacles in real time.
