Sensory control based on biological computational paradigms can be implemented using low-power analog very large-scale integrated circuitry. We describe a design frame and a set of circuit elements with which generic motor controllers can be implemented. We then embed a simple proportional-derivative motor controller in the design frame, and describe its performance advantages over a more traditional controller. We also discuss the merits of biologically inspired systems used in applications related to robotics.
