Motor babbling is a process of repeatedly performing a random motor command for a short duration. It is a system of robot learning whereby a robotic system can autonomously develop an internal model of its self-body and its environment.[1][2][3]

It is a recent methodology with respect to complicated robotic system such as humanoid robots.[citation needed] Motor babbling is one of the methodologies which seek to imitate human-like cognition and learning in robotic systems.[citation needed]
