[en] A neural behavior initiating agent (BIA) is proposed to integrate relevant compressed image information coming from others cooperating and specialized neural agents. Using this arrangement the problem of tracking and recognizing a moving icon has been solved by partitioning it into three simpler and separated tasks. Neural modules associated to those tasks proved to be easier to train and show a good general performance. The obtained neural controller can handle spurious images and solve an acute image related task in a dynamical environment. Under prolonged dead-lock conditions the controller shows traces of genuine spontaneity. The overall performance has been tested using a pan and tilt camera platform and real images taken from several objects, showing the good tracking results discussed in the paper.
