Abstract

This chapter reports on the conceptual design of an octopus-inspired robot. The investigation started from slow speed gaits, such as the crawling locomotion of octopuses, and was followed by faster gaits such as bipedal walking and hopping. Results envisage that this novel locomotion can be exploited to increase the mobility of underwater robots in the benthic realm.
