In this paper, pattern formation occurring on a 3-D network of locally coupled relaxation oscillators is presented. The network can be programmed with coupling weights and initial conditions in order to generate traveling waves, autowaves and spiral waves. Furthermore, this paper introduces a simple algorithm to solve robot path finding problem in a 3-D environment using active wave computing techniques.
