Moth love

From the journal Bioinspiration and Biomimetics: “A small, two-wheeled robot has been driven by a male silkmoth to track down the sex pheromone usually given off by a female. The robot, created by researchers from the University of Tokyo, has been used to characterize the silkmoth's tracking behaviors and it is hoped that these can be applied to other autonomous robots so they can track down smells, and subsequent sources, of environmental spills and leaks when fitted with highly sensitive sensors.”
