In this study, we improved our previous snake-like rescue robot by developing and implementing a stabilizing mechanism. By designing the mechanism to work passively, we achieved a stabilizing function without any CPU and sensors. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the developed mechanism, experiments in which the robot approaches a vertical wall at various(More)

On the other hand, animals and insects can behave adaptively, even in an unknown environment, even though they do not have such sensors. In ecological psychology,(More)
