This paper discusses a method of locomotion called the “fluid powered ropeway”. It aims to collect information in dangerous buildings as rapidly and safely as possible. The device is mainly composed of a flexible flat tube and a gondola probe driven by fluid power using the buckling phenomenon of the tube. The big advantage is the gondola has(More)
This paper proposes a novel flexible sliding actuator driven by fluid power. The actuator called Λ -drive is basically composed of a flat tube and a slider. In the slider the tube is bent, then the buckling point occurs, which helps to cut off the fluid passage in order to provide the driving force to the slider when pressurizing one side of the(More)
This paper discusses the design and motion experiments of the newly constructed jumping & rolling inspector Leg-in-rotor-II. The features of Leg-in-rotor-II are as follow; (i) The driving method of 3-D jumping & rolling by the reduced degrees of freedom on the separated drive. (ii) The introduction of the passively stored leg. (iii) The introduction of the(More)
