Attempting to implement improved versions of the snapshot system alongside path integration has caused confusion in the code, as well as tied my mind into knots, preventing development of rotation of a target scene. However, this rotation is not in keeping with studies into insect navigation, so is perhaps best left out of the project.
To help with the path integration, I have been reviewing documentation to understand how others have achieved this. There is a lot of information describing the natural world mathematically, but not as much information describing specific implementations, which could provide solid examples for guidance. There was a NetLogo example for another university coursework, but there was no path integration, just remembering landmarks and using the move-to command to return to them, which is against the development principles behind the project.
As such, the objectives for the coming week are the same as last week, with the addition of taking a step back from the project and developing the path integration technique in a separate NetLogo file, allowing its development without the issue of existing code confusing the situation.
