Six-Legged Robot One-Ups Nature With Faster Gait
In an article published last week in Nature Communications, researchers from EPFL, in Lausanne, Switzerland, managed to show that for legged hexapods, a bipedal gait (using just two active legs at once) is often the fastest and most efficient way of ...

How ants find their way in the desert
The longer, more direct portion of the return journey is faster; the ant slows its gait when it switches into search mode close to home base. Lab tests and field observations confirm previous studies, which suggest ants -- especially desert ants ...
