Al. (2002)] and [Ayers et. al. (1998)l) often consider a set of basic motion patterns dealing with different forms of behavior, for example to account for forward locomotion and left and right turning patterns. These basic patterns can be simultaneously stimulated and combined to form the desired pattern. e. slow, medium and fast) to obtain a gait able to show continuous transitions between them. e. 2. However, an important difference from the behavioral approach emerges. In [Kirchner (1997)] distinct behavioral modules are simultaneously activated, while in our case we define a new set of connections.

This proves that simple principles can implement sensory feedback in the CPG-based hierarchical locomotion control system, providing the bio-inspired robot with further capabilities. 2 Feedback from ground contact sensors In this Section another example of sensory feedback is presented [Arena et. al. (2003a)l. This approach exploits the synchronization of dynamical systems to allow modulation of the locomotion pattern by means of feedback from sensors. The approach does not depend on the sensors used.

8 Waveform 2 1 of system ( 3 . 1. ). it shows the period of oscillations versus the amplitude of the idealized ground contact signal. To match this plot with the 1 : 1 Arnold tongue shown in Fig. 7, the period of oscillations is on the x-axis, even if the period is a function of the applied signal amplitude. 9 allows us to draw the conclusion that the oscillations occur at the boundary of the 1 : 1 synchronization region. Therefore, this approach leads to a CPG able to show a locomotion pattern modulated by the sensory feedback, in which the stepping frequency is slower in absence of feedback.
