This paper introduces a new, 50g miniature robot (Figure 1 and attached video) that uses four direct-drive hybrid wheel/legs and has been clocked at speeds exceeding 30 body lengths/s. The lowest recorded cost of transport (defined as total energy to move the robot mass a given distance) is 0.90. We discuss hardware considerations for design of robots at this scale, and the benefits of a direct-drive system over coupled transmissions. We develop a simple simulation model to examine the effects… CONTINUE READING
