The plant roots as a model for Collective Adaptive Behaviour and as a source
of inspiration for
Soft Robotics

The plant root system morphologically adapts to the environment and explores it with a number of rich sensorized probes.

Plants represent an excellent paradigm in terms of energy efficiency, low speed, strong actuation, and low power consumption.

Plants show adaptively variable growth and development during their  lifetime.
