Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machines

Animals are intelligent. They have the capacity to move and survive in dynamically changing environments. They have a variety of sensory systems that combine both reflexive and cognitive processes to sense and respond to their environment. Physical (reflexive) and informational (cognitive) interactions are crucial for them to realize intelligent behavior. Bio-inspired and biomimetic studies have successfully achieved adaptive robot behavior by understanding such interactions. The development of adaptive robots also helps us understand animals' natural intelligence.

This special issue focuses on the interdisciplinary field where biology and robotics join to understand the adaptive motion of animals and machines. We are accepting interdisciplinary papers generated from the interaction between engineers and biologists, which may not be appropriate for a traditional mono-disciplinary journal. Our goal is to focus on new ideas generated among several fields related to adaptive intelligence.
