—This paper provides a closed-form analytical solution to the motion planning problem for the Snakeboard. Given a desired planar trajectory in the fiber space, an explicit solution is computed for the gaits in the base space that locomote the Snakeboard along the desired trajectory. This is achieved by introducing a new momentum-like variable that(More)
Erythrocytes undergo deformations when they transport O(2) and CO(2) across the membrane, yet the 3D nanomechanics of the skeletal network remains poorly understood. Expanding from our previous single isolated unit, we now simulate networks consisting of 1-10 concentric rings of repeating units in equibiaxial deformation. The networks are organized with (1)(More)
