Hopping, climbing and swimming robots, nano-size neural networks, motorless walkers, slime mould and chemical brains - qArtificial Life Models in Hardwareq offers unique designs and prototypes of life-like creatures in conventional hardware and hybrid bio-silicon systems. Ideas and implementations of living phenomena in non-living substrates cast a colourful picture of state-of-art advances in hardware models of artificial life.The BZ reaction can be used to assist the navigation of a mobile robot in a real- life environment . ... reactor containing the liquid-phase BZ medium, the chemical medium can be intermittently stimulated to sensibly guide the robot. ... BZ reaction are initiated using a silver colloid solution, which is added to the medium via a micro pipette by a human-operator. ... Because vibrations adversely affect the excitation waves in the BZ system, we endeavoured to make the movements of theanbsp;...
