Worm Biomimicry Inspires More Flexible Slithering Robots | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

A researcher from the University of Leeds has drawn inspiration from nature to build a robotic worm that can wiggle its way around obstacles. Dubbed worm-bot, the robot is modeled after the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode – a minuscule  free-living worm that uses a very simple nervous system of just over 300 neurons to control the way it moves and functions.
