Though significant progress on autonomous navigation hasbeen made, the natural world offers interesting examples of navigationaltechniques that are worth exploring and understanding. The cognitive mechanism of mental rotation has been revealed in numerous cognitive and neuroscientific experiments; its reason for existence and evolution, however, has yet to be thoroughly understood. It is speculated that thismechanism may assist primates in navigation. This paper explores howmental rotation can be used in navigation by developing an autonomousrobotic navigation algorithm that draws inspiration from the mechanism. This algorithm was tested on a robot tasked with navigating to a specified goal location contained within the agent-s initial view. The testingsuggests that mental rotation can be used as an asset in navigation.
