Ground following locomotion of a robot inspired by pill bugs

Abstract

This paper introduces ‘Ground Following Locomotion’ as a means to traverse rough terrain inspired by pill bugs(Armadillidium vulgare). The locomotion of pill bugs is unique and effective on irregular terrain. Pill bugs bend their bodies actively along with the terrain to maintain traction force and the behavior enables them to overcome irregular terrain… (More)
