This paper details some of the various robotics projects which have been inspired by the natural world, and which the authors believe will have an impact on the future of robotic space exploration. This includes both hardware-centric projects such as RiSE, and projects which concentrate more on software and control such as Swarm-bots. The authors outline two of the biologically inspired planetary explorer robots currently under investigation at the University of Surrey.
