Science is reporting the development of a walking robot capable of reassessing its own physiology and adjusting its gait in response to damage (see also ScienceDaily, Scientific American and Physorg).

Wounded Robot

The research has been done at Cornell university by Hod Lipson and Victor Zykov.

Zykov was involved in an earlier demonstration of self-assembling and self-repairing robots called, MolecubesTM.
