Salamandra robotica II,  an amphibian robot created by the Bio-robotics Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) will be presented at the Innorobot Show held in Lyon from 19 to 21 March. The team headed by Professor Auke Ijspeert has perfected this latest generation in collaboration with Jean-Marie Cabelguen INSERM Research Director in Bordeaux.

Salamandra robotica II digitally reproduces the networks of medular neurons that produce locomotion. It is the only robot inspired by nature and capable of swimming, climbing and walking. The electrical signals sent to the robot by a “brain” computer enable it to walk or swim,  and to control the speed and direction of movement.
