Automation of quantum Braitenberg vehicles using finite automata: Moore machines

Since the advent of quantum computation, there have been attempts to apply quantum mechanics to robotics and develop quantum robots. In this paper, we discuss the working of classical Braitenberg vehicles and the various problems which lead us to propose a novel improvement by automating it using classical finite automata, Moore machines. We then improve by introducing an intrinsic nature to it such that it stops its motion without requiring external signals, by using entanglement. This leads to our design of a quantum automated Braitenberg vehicle which we improve by incorporating the possibility of external control over its movement. We implement the circuits in IBM quantum experience and obtain results matching our theoretical predictions. This paper makes the following contributions: an experimental verification of the quantum logic with reasonably good results despite decoherence and errors in quantum gate applications, the idea of introducing intrinsic behaviour using quantum mechanics, the idea of flexibility in developing manual external controls, and achieving better results than classical robots using lesser number of gates.
