  • The idea of building machines that reflect biological structures is certainly not new.  From Leonardo Da Vinci who dreamt of winged flying machines to the clockwork automata, humans have been trying to build machines that can perform tasks as successfully as the myriad of creatures in our natural world.
  • One of the most prominent researchers in the field of biomorphic robotics has been  Mark W. Tilden , who has taken  Rodney Brooks ' theory of removing the world model from robots to a low hardware level not even using microprocessors. This is not to say the lack of microprocessors makes something biomorphic - quite the contrary. There is a huge amount of work be done implementing biological nervous and neural networks into computing devices. In contrast  M. Anthony Lewis  has used the field of biomorphic robots to study how humans and animals use "biologically inspired principles" to negotiate the complexities of the real world. The difference between  neuromorphics  and biomorphics is believed to be that neuromorphics focuses on analogue control and sensor systems as opposed to biomorphics trying to implement biological methods on the whole system. An excellent example of a biomorphic machine is the  robot snake .

  • Born in the  UK  in 1961, raised in Canada, he started at the  University of Waterloo  then moved on to the  Los Alamos National Laboratory  where he developed robots such as the SATbot which instinctively aligned itself to the  magnetic field  of the earth, de-mining insectoids, "Nervous Network" theory and applications, interplanetary explorers, and behavioral research into many solar-powered "Living Machines" of his own design. Mark and his robots have been featured on several television specials, such as "Robots Rising" (Discovery), "The Shape of Life" (PBS), "TechnoSpy" (TLC), "Extreme Machines - Incredible Robots" (TLC), "The Science behind Star Wars" (Discovery), as well as many magazines, newspaper publications, websites, and books. A comprehensive article on Tilden (December-2010) by Thomas Marsh is viewable online through the "Robot" Magazine website.  [2] Mark was a technical consultant for the robot scenes in the 2001 movie  Lara Croft: Tomb Raider  and his robots have been prominent in many movies including  The 40 Year Old Virgin ,  Paul Blart Mall Cop ,  X-Men: The Last Stand , and more. His robots are also continuous background props in the TV series  The Big Bang Theory .
  • Scientific approach In his paper, " Elephants Don't Play Chess. ", Brooks argued that interacting with the physical world is far more difficult than symbolically reasoning about it.  Symbolic computational  approaches to creating intelligent machines had long been the focus of AI since the days of  Alan Turing , directly tracing back to the work of  Gottlob Frege . Brooks focused instead on biologically-inspired robotic architectures (e.g., the  subsumption architecture ) that address basic perceptual and sensorimotor tasks. In the late  1980s  Brooks and his team introduced  Allen , a robot using  subsumption architecture . Currently, Brooks' work focuses on engineering intelligent robots to operate in unstructured environments, and understanding human intelligence through building humanoid robots. [ edit ]Career summary [ edit ] Leadership Brooks formerly serves as Panasonic Professor of Robotics at the  Massachusetts Institute of Technology . He was also co-founder and  Chief Technical Officer  and sits on the Board of  iRobot Corp. From July 1, 2003, until June 30, 2007, he was director of the  MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory ; prior to that, he was director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He left MIT in 2008 to found a new company, Rethink Robotics (formerly Heartland Robotics), where he serves as chairman and Chief Technical Officer. [ edit ] Research He received a degree in mathematics from  Flinders University  of South Australia and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from  Stanford University  in 1981 under the supervision of  Thomas Binford . [1]  He has held research positions at  Carnegie Mellon University  and  MIT  and a faculty position at  Stanford University . He joined the faculty of  MIT  in 1984. His previous research includes  behavior based robotics  and the * Cog project .

  • A  snakebot  is a  biomorphic   hyper-redundant   robot  that resembles a  snake . Snake robots come in all shapes and sizes, from the three meters long, fire fighting snakebot developed by  SINTEF , [1]  to a medical snakebot developed at  Carnegie Mellon University  that is thin enough to maneuver around organs inside a human chest cavity. Though snakebots can vary greatly in size and design, there are two qualities that all snakebots share. First, their small cross section to length ratio allows them to move into, and maneuver through, tight spaces. Second, their ability to change the shape of their body allows them to perform a wide range of behaviours, such as climbing stairs or tree trunks. Additionally, many snake robots are constructed by chaining together a number of independent links. This redundancy makes them resistant to failure, because they can continue to operate even if parts of their body are destroyed.
