Bio-inspired Locomotion – 28 July 2021

We will bring together biologists and roboticists to explore the design and control of living machines for the purpose of locomotion in the natural world. This workshop will cover both biomechanics and neural organization, and how the systems work together to achieve effective interactions with the physical environment.
