More than 60 contributions in ethology, ecology, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, and related fields investigate behaviours and the underlying mechanisms that allow animals and, potentially, robots to adapt and survive in uncertain environments.
The animat approach is attractive not just as a way of developing and testing theories of biological systems. It also constitutes an approach to the design of practical artificial systems, in particular robots, which, it is hoped, will overcome many of the limitations of more conventional methods within artificial intelligence and engineering. The interplay between biological and engineering concerns and the commonality between research from both perspectives is one of the most promising aspects of animat research and is an intriguing theme throughout the book. --TheQuarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology (review of the first proceedings volume)
