In this paper, wide-field integration methods, which are inspired by the spatial decompositions of wide-field patterns of optic flow in the insect visuomotor system, are explored as an efficient means to extract visual cues for guidance and navigation. A control-theoretic framework is developed and used to quantitatively link weighting functions to behaviorally-relevant interpretations such as relative orientation, position, and speed in a corridor environment. It is shown through analysis and demonstration on a ground vehicle that the proposed sensorimotor architecture gives rise to navigational heuristics, namely, centering and speed regulation, which are observed in natural systems.
