This paper presents a new computational paradigm which can be successfully applied in robotics for the control of autonomous mobile robots. Membrane computing is a naturally parallel and distributed model of computation inspired by the structure and functioning of living cells. Numerical P systems, a type of membrane systems which operates with numerical values, and the extension, enzymatic numerical P systems, were used for modeling robot behaviors. Current results and developments of this innovative approach are also discussed and analyzed.
