Artificial Intelligence Evolutionary co-optimization Robotics Biomimicry
By drawing inspiration from the functional behavior of the seahorse tail, we propose a novel type of bio-inspired robotic manipulator that combines the rigidness and strength offered by hard robot arms and the dynamic conformation potential and flexibility of soft robotics. Additionally, we propose a novel and generic methodology for robot morphology and controller co-optimization through evolution.
