Neuronal circuits known as central pattern generators (CPG) are responsible for the rhythmic motions in animal locomotion. These circuits exploit the resonant modes of the body to produce efficient locomotion through sensory feedback. As such, the neuronal mechanisms are of interest in the control of autonomous robotic vehicles. The objective of this study(More)
Rhythmic movements associated with animal locomotion are controlled by neuronal circuits known as central pattern generators (CPG). These biological control systems appear to entrain to the natural frequencies of the mechanical systems they control, taking advantage of the resonance of the structure, resulting in efficient control. The ultimate goal is(More)
