We describe the first robot designed to emulate specific perceptual and motor capabilities of the fiddler crab. An omnidirectional robot platform uses onboard computation to process images from a 360^backslashcirc 360 ∘ camera view, filtering it through a biological model of the crab's ommatidia layout, extracting potential `predator' cues, and executing an evasion response that also depends on contextual information. We show that, as for real crabs, multiple cues are needed for effective escape in different predator-prey scenarios.
