The paper develops a neuromorphic system on a Spartan 6 field programmable gate array (FPGA) board to generate locomotion patterns (gaits) for three different legged robots (biped, quadruped, and hexapod). The neuromorphic system consists of a reconfigurable FPGA-based architecture for a 3G artificial neural network (spiking neural network), which acts as a Central Pattern Generator (CPG). The locomotion patterns, are then generated by the CPG through a general neural architecture, which parameters are offline estimated by means of grammatical evolution and Victor-Purpura distance-based fitness function. The neuromorphic system is fully validated on real biped, quadruped, and hexapod robots.
