Animal Mechanics to Control Mutually Opposing Forces Inspire Improved Control Systems for Small Robots
A quirk of nature has long baffled biologists: Why do animals push in directions that don't point toward their goal, such as the side-to-side sashaying of a running lizard or cockroach? An engineer building a robot would likely avoid these movements because they seem wasteful. So why do animals behave this way?

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and ﬂexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, reﬁned process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and stafﬁng challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
