Abstract

Although landmarks are used as global one in the model of navigation, the insects in temperate zone have to use local landmarks and local visual cues. Because local landmarks could be equipped with fundamental ambiguity, the landmarks are destined to be both Go-and Stop-signs. We propose the agent-fashioned pilot navigation model resulting from the vague local landmarks. The agent of the model can explore by making landmarks step by step, and can go home by tracing stored memories of landmarks.
