Description: Advances in biologically-inspired technologies, such as artificial intelligence and artificial muscles, are making the possibility of robots that look and behave like humans a closer reality. The multidisciplinary issues involved in the development of these biomimetic robots (those that mimic biology) include materials, actuators, sensors, structures, functionality, control, intelligence, and autonomy. This professional textbook reviews various aspects ranging from the biological model to the vision for the future.
