Module overview

This module lies at the intersection of robotics and biology. Through the abstraction of design principles from biological systems, it is possible to develop a range of core competences, including mechatronic systems, sensor and actuator technologies. By taking this module students will get an understanding of adaptivity and autonomy of animals through robotics, and have the opportunity to design, build and test novel robotic applications which are more adaptive, maneuverable, resilient, and energy efficient than current designs. Previous robots developed have included the Formica swarm robot, mobile platforms, swiming and flying robots, robotic heads and a range of advanced sensors.
