Project description

This research will focus on the locomotion of robots by studying morphological computation. Morphological computation, a new domain in the field of biologically inspired robotics, investigates the relationship between body, brain and environment.

The goals are: to study morphological computation theoretically, to develop design principles for biologically inspired robots, and to evaluate these principles in simulation and by prototyping.
