Tetrabot: Resonance based locomotion for harsh enviroments

Abstract

We describe a robotic architecture that combines the benefits of existing enclosed robots with passive dynamics. This combination results in a mobile robot with no moving parts exposed to the environment, making it ideal for tasks where wheeled or legged robots fail. Instead of suppressing resonance, the new robot morphology relies on the dynamics of… (More)
