Hierarchical Temporal Memory networks and Braitenbergs’s multi-dimensional internal representation of sensory space

Im currently writing about the similarity between the spacio-temporal “mapping” that occurs in a Braitenberg Vehicle 10 architecture (pg. 50,¬†Braitenberg, V. (1984). Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology, The MIT Press) and the Hierarchical Temporal memory (HTM) architecture proposed by Jeff Hawkins (Hawkins, J. and S. Blakeslee (2004). On Intelligence, Times Books.) and used by Jean-Charles Quinton (Quinton, J.-C. (2009). Coordination implicite d’interactions sensorimotrices comme fondement de la cognition. J.-C. Buisson, Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT))

Braitenberg’s architecture represents a¬†multi-dimensional internal representation of sensory space as do HTM’s. But Braitenberg never tells the reader how to wire the network up, Hawkins does. So should I use Hawkins’ HTM model?
