Researchers study morphological intelligence encoded into the physical system of animals

The community of researchers developing robot-models that are designed according to the morphological intelligence of animals is growing steadily. Roboticists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Harvard University study a swimming soft robot and its wave-like propulsion under water. From their findings about the parameters which influence the thrust force of the robot, they then draw conclusions about the complex locomotion of fish.

Superhero Gecko´s latest mystery solved

  • 07 December 2018

An international team of Scientists observed the reptil running across the surface of water – a skill no other more mid-sized creature has. How, the scientists wondered, do geckos manage to walk on water this quickly? The new discovery of the mechanisms geckos employ puts the lizard in the superhero category.
