T-RHex Robot: Smart Military Robot
T-RHex Robot, T-RHex
T-RHex Robot is a smart military robot that can climb steep slopes and grip onto rough surfaces. The T-RHex has microspines on its feet to grip onto bricks, concrete, and other surfaces. T-RHex Robot is augmented with microspine feet that make it ideal for climbing natural surfaces. These microspine feet use dozens of tiny hooks to catch onto millimeter-scale surface irregularities on walls, adhering and allowing the robot to climb a variety of surfaces. These microspines work really well on rough rocky surfaces, concrete and brick surfaces, as well as softer surfaces, such as wood, as all of these have plenty of 'catch-points' typically referred to as asperities.
