Walking of arthropods especially that of insects have inspired engineers and scientists in the past. While hexapods are being designed and build for life rescue missing in natural disaster regions, to climb walls and bridges, enter into otherwise inaccessible areas, little knowledge is yet adapted from nature to mimic a natural walking gait. Recent findings indicate that termites can walk very quietly and dodge predatory ants by avoiding excessive footstep vibrations, thereby staying up to 100 times quieter...
