Resumé

Bio-inspired robotics is an approach that looks at how nature solves a (complex) problem and applies the
solution to a robot. Based on this approach, we have looked at walking animals that can exploit their legs for multiple
functions, like locomotion and object manipulation/transportation. This is to expand the ability of walking robots. According to this, we have developed our robotic model based on a dung beetle, an animal that can walk and roll a dung
ball using its legs. In this paper, we present distributed sensor-driven control for generating dung beetle-like walking
and ball rolling behaviors of the developed model. The control mechanism is based on the Walknet bio-inspired controller. Furthermore, this paper gives a proof of concept that locomotion and object manipulation/transportation can be
achieved without installing additional manipulators and/or grippers on a robot as shown by other works. To this end, the
bio-inspired strategy can avoid the requirement of additional energy to power the manipulator or gripper system; thereby
leading to an energy-efficient multi-functional robotic system.
