In this paper a locomotion strategy for a six-limb robot inspired by the octopus is shown. A tight relationship between the muscular system and the nervous systems exists in the octopus. At a high level of abstraction, the same relationship between the mechanical structure and the control of the robot is presented here. The control board sends up to six signals to the limbs, which mechanically perform a stereotypical rhythmical movement. The results show how by coordinating only two limbs an effective locomotion is achieved.
