Deformable soft wheel robot using hybrid actuation

Abstract

The mobility of a wheeled robot in various terrains is basically limited by the size of the wheel. If the size of the wheel is fixed, the robot can only pass through a hole bigger than the wheel size. Furthermore, the robot cannot climb stairs much higher than the wheel size.
