Nearly all robotic grippers have one trait in common: they grasp objects with normal forces, either directly, or indirectly through friction. This method of grasping is effective for objects small enough for a given gripper to partially encompass. However, to grasp larger objects, significant grip forces and a high coefficient of friction are required. We(More)
Conclusion Jumping of legged mobile robots has been a highly motivated research area. When a running robot encounters obstacles comparable to its body height, jumping is one of the most effective ways to overcome them. Also, if the robots can jump over gaps or crevices, the mobility of robots in a wild field would be enhanced drastically.The jumping(More)
Grasping and manipulating uncooperative objects in space is an emerging challenge for robotic systems. Many traditional robotic grasping techniques used on Earth are infeasible in space. Vacuum grippers require an atmosphere, sticky attachments fail in the harsh environment of space, and handlike opposed grippers are not suited for large, smooth space(More)
Perching can extend the useful mission life of a micro air vehicle. Once perched, climbing allows it to reposition precisely, with low power draw and without regard for weather conditions. We present the Stanford Climbing and Aerial Maneuvering Platform, which is to our knowledge the first robot capable of flying, perching with passive technology on outdoor(More)
