This paper presents how neural swimming controllers for a lamprey can be adapted for controlling both the swimming and the walking of a salamander like an imat Using a Genetic Algorithm GA we extend a connectionist model of the biological Central Pat tern Generator CPG controlling the swimming of a lamprey Ekeberg to control the locomotion of a D mechanical simulation of a salamander We rst summarize experiments on the evolution of alternative swimming controllers for the lamprey Ijspeert et al… CONTINUE READING
