Abstract:The previously formulated tool dubbed Huyghens Engine, concerning information sensing, processing and actuating through wave motion in connection with the ubiquitous phenomenon of coupled oscillator synchronization, is applied here on the nanoscale for designing deeper metaphors of biosystem sensorimotor behaviour to attain the long sought-after bioinspired autonomous, self-propelled, walking, swimming or flying macro-/microsized robots. A nanoscale description of information processing is in terms of neural images of perception/action coherent flows of information by resonant coupling of inner nano-fields and external aerodynamic/hydrodynamic and gravitational fields in Lie group geometrizable classical functional spaces, possibly through Heisenberg's molecular field. This concerns both metaphor-free biomimicry and nanobiological research.
