CLASH Robot: Smart Micro Robot



CLASH Robot is a robot capable of climbing vertical loose-cloth surfaces at 15 cm per second. The robot has a single actuator driving its six legs which are equipped with novel passive foot mechanisms to facilitate smooth engagement and disengagement of spines. These foot mechanisms are designed to be used on penetrable surfaces and offer improved tensile normal force generation during stance and reduced normal pull-off forces during retraction. CLASH is able to climb a loose vertical cloth and is able to climb surfaces when surface rigidity is not guaranteed. CLASH is designed to use a single drive actuator to maintain the high-power density required for climbing.
