This paper describes ongoing research into the role of optic-flow derived spatial representations and their relation to cognitive computational models of mental rotation in primates, with the goal of producing effective and unique autonomous robot navigational capabilities. A theoretical framework is outlined based on a vectorial interlingua spanning perception, cognition and motor control. Progress to date on its implementation within an autonomous robot control architecture is presented.
