In recent years, advances and improvements in engineering and robotics have been strengthening interactions between biological science and robotics in the goal of mimicking the complexity of biological systems. In this paper, motor control paradigms inspired by human mechanisms of sensory-motor coordination are applied to a biologically-inspired, purpose-designed robotic platform. The goal was to define and implement a multi-network architecture and to demonstrate that progressive learning of object grasping and manipulation can greatly increase performance of a robotic system in terms of adaptability, flexibility, growing competences and generalization, while preserving the robustness of traditional control. The paper presents the neural approach to sensory-motor coordination and shows preliminary results of the integration with the robotic system by means of simulation tests and experimental trials.
