Simple and efficient, locomotion is how many of earth’s creatures get around. It’s no wonder, then, that engineers have taught robots to move in the same way. In the Journal of Bionic Engineering, researchers report a new kind of worm-like robot that features a motion-correcting eye. The robot is composed of detachable silicone chambers that deform when air is pumped into or out of them. A central computer synchronizes different air pressures in the chambers to produce locomotion. Connecting two worms in tandem allows for steering left or right and gives this modular robot the ability to grip and move objects. Because rotation tends to send the robot slightly off course over time, the robot’s creators connected a camera that measures this error and reports how to correct it, making this robot not only mobile and multifunctional, but also smart.
