  1. Bio-inspired robotics meeting has moth-driven robot, fish simulation, BigDog, more

    The fourth meeting on Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machines (AMAM) took place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, last week. Automaton contributor John Bender, a postdoc in biology at Case, has the highlights: AMAM 2008 was a one-week, single-track conference, including four keynotes, over 70 posters, and a "robot zoo" populated by a menagerie of mobile machines. The coffee break buzz indicated that most of the 150 attendees found the meeting to be a superb confluence of the cutting edge in bio-inspired robotics. Locomotion specialists from both biology and engineering were well represented, and the meeting continually …
