Zothecula writes “In an effort to understand how animals move elegantly and in turn provide robots with the same ability, researchers at the University of Bielefeld’s Center of Excellence ‘Cognitive Interaction Technology’ (CITEC) have developed the hexapod walking robot called HECTOR (Hexapod Cognitive autonomously Operating Robot). Designed within CITEC’s multi-disciplinary Mulero project, the robot possesses the scaled up morphology of a stick insect and will be used as a test bed in various departments and projects at the University.”
