When reading about the "trick" vehicle 5 uses to extend its memory ("writing" the digits of a number larger than its internal capacity into the sand at the beach), the notion of Turing Machines immediately came to my mind (at least the agent seems to behave like a Turing Machine to the observer wrt the Frame-of-Reference-Problem).

I find this rather interesting as Turing machines are sort of the basic model for Classical AI (GOFAI) whereas a Braitenberg vehicle can be regarded as an example for an embodied agent, representing the new Embodied AI. Doesn't this example somehow connect the two approaches in quite a nice way..?
