Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machines

Investigating how animals and humans excel at adaptive movements including locomotion can help engineers to improve the adaptive capabilities of robots. In return, robots can serve as scientific tools to explore the basic principles of biological systems, in particular the neuromechanical mechanisms underlying their fascinating motor abilities. Studying adaptive motion stimulates, in this way, fruitful interactions among biologists and engineers interested in intelligent behaviors. It aims at bringing together researchers in robotics, biomechanics, neuroscience, sports science, and other fields related to behavior in biological and artificial systems.

This special issue strongly focuses on early and promising findings/achievements in this interdisciplinary field. We are accepting interdisciplinary papers generated from the interaction between engineers and biologists, which sometimes may not be accepted in the traditional mono-disciplinary journal. We would rather focus on new ideas generated among several fields related to adaptive intelligence.
