  Project Hybrid Projects in the Cognitive Sciences - Case Studies on Biorobotics
Biorobotics is an interdisciplinary research field which concerns itself with research on, and development of, a new generation of machines and robots.
Biorobotics seeks to achieve flexible task performance that is similar to that of organisms by means of such capabilities as learning behavior (adaptive behavior), locational mobility, and autonomous navigation and perception (the sensorimotor aspect).
One example of the realization of the biorobotic project would be the possibility of developing a "swarm of pipe crawlers" that could, in "consultation" with one another, sound out the illegal introduction of waste water, register pipe damage and carry out simple repair work (e.g., clogging).

 Biorobotics
Biorobotics can be understood as methodology of "Computational Neuroethology", a discipline that studies computer models of the neuronal mechanisms underlying animal behavior.
A large portion of our work in the biorobotics project focuses on the impressive abilities of insects: we use wheeled mobile robots to model their navigation behavior (Sahabot, Analog robot), and a flying robot to investigate visual odometry and visuo-motor coordination (stabilization, obstacle avoidance) of flying insects.
Pushing the envelope of biorobotics further to human level behavior, the biped locomotion project, attempts to use bipedal walking robots to understand the neural and dynamic mechanisms of human walking.

 Biorobotics
Biorobotics is often used to refer to the study of making robots that emulate or simulate living biological organisms, it is also used in the reverse: making biological organisms as manipulatable and functional as robots.
In the later sense biorobotics is referred to as a theoretical discipline of comprehensive genetic engineering in which organisms are created and designed by artificial means.
The Replicants in the movie Blade Runner would be considered biorobotic in nature: (synthetic) organisms of living tissue and cells yet created artificially.

 Biorobotics - The MIT Press
The new, multidisciplinary field of biorobotics provides tools for biologists studying animal behavior and testbeds for the study and evaluation of biological algorithms for potential engineering applications.
An animal is profoundly affected by the many subtle and complex signals within its environment, and because the animal invariably disturbs its environment, it constantly creates a new set of stimuli.
Biorobots are now enabling biologists to understand these complex animal-environment relationships.
