A GROUP of cockroaches have found a friend in a matchbox-sized robot called Insbot. Developed at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Insbot has learned how to mimic cockroaches’ behaviour and interact with a colony of the insects. The device was developed to show how artificial systems could interact with animals in future mixed societies, Gilles Caprari and colleagues report in the latest edition of IEEE Robotics and Automation (vol 12, p 58). In addition to a host of touch sensors that allow it to interact with the roaches,
