Scurrying Roaches Help Researchers Steady Staggering Robots

Georgia Institute of Technology

To walk or run with finesse, roaches or robots coordinate leg movements via signals sent through centralized systems. Though their moving parts are utterly divergent, researchers have devised handy principles and equations to assess how both beasts and bots locomote and to improve robotic gait.
