Caenorhabditis elegans is a small worm which is approximately 1 mm in length. The present study proposes an estimation method for frictional force using locomotion information obtained from video analysis of actual worms. The results indicate that the body model driven by the estimated frictional force can trace the locomotion of the worm within a low error level of 4% of the body length. The proposed method can be applied to analyze the relationship between friction and gait control.
