RoboTerp Robot: Smart Amphibious Robot


RoboTerp Robot, RoboTerp, Amphibious Robot

RoboTerp Robot is a smart amphibious robot that uses the same legs by switching gaits to match the terrain. The robot has a passive compliant mechanism attached to the lower leg that enables it to behave like a valve during movement in water. The direction of this valve-like mechanism is placed in such a manner that rhythmic oscillations of the legs generate a net thrust that propels the robot forward in water. This leg movement achieves splash-free swimming.
