South Korean scientists made a robot that is able to assess the obstacle (and the height of it) in front of itself and the jump. The robot makes use of two recycled plastic bottles and gains its upward pushing power by compressed air inside. See video below.
Mechanical locomotion principles from jumping insects applied to microrobots. Researchers from the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL are unveiling a novel, grasshopper-inspired jumping robot at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation today in Pasadena, California.The robot weighs a miniscule 7 grams, and can jump 1.4 meters, or more than 27 times its […]
