The concept of biomimetic control, i.e., control systems that mimic biological animals in the way they exercise control, rather than just humans, has led to the definition of a new class of biologically inspired robots that exhibit much greater robustness in performance in unstructured environments than the robots that are currently being built. A key feature of biomimetic robots is their capacity to adapt to the environment and ability to learn and react fast. However, a biomimetic robot is not just about learning and adaptation but also involves novel mechanisms and manipulator structures capable of meeting the enhanced performance requirements. Thus, biomimetic robots are being designed to be substantially more compliant and stable than conventionally controlled robots and will take advantage of new developments in materials, microsystems technology, as well as developments that have led to a deeper understanding of biological behaviour. 

The underwater robots are one of the extreme environment robots that are expected as one of solutions for underwater activities; maintenance of underwater structures, observations, scientific research. Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have great advantages for activities in deep oceans and are expected as the attractive tool for underwater development or investigation near future. The AUVs should be autonomous with adaptive function to their environment. Common situations that employ rescue robots are mining accidents, urban disasters, hostage situations, and explosions. Search and rescue technology to-date still rely on old technologies such as search dogs, and technology that has been in service for decades. Intelligent robot systems are increasingly being used in disaster control, rescue missions and salvage operations wherever it is too dangerous for humans. Robots that are used in disaster areas have to have a very high level of adaptability. They have to be fairly small, not too heavy and manoeuvrable enough to get through cracks or narrow spaces to reach areas deep inside a building. Furthermore, rough terrain should present no problem. These rescue robots enter and explore buildings to determine if there are gases, radiation or other life-threatening hazards, before human rescue teams can search the area.
