  • Ernst Niebur (a1), Mounya Elhilali (a2), Iyad Obeid (a3), Justin Werfel (a4), Mark Blanchard (a5), Mattia Frasca (a6), Kaushik Ghose (a7), Constanze Hofstoetter (a5), Giovanni Indiveri (a8) and Mark W. Tilden (a9)...


While robotics has benefited from inspiration gained from biology, the opposite is not the case: there are few if any cases in which robotic models have lead to genuine insight into biology. We analyze the reasons why biorobotics has been essentially a one-way street. We argue that the development of better tools is essential for progress in this field.
