Chinese scientists have developed an aquatic microrobot that mimics the water-walking abilities of the Gerridae – a family of long-legged bugs commonly known as water striders that are able to run on top of the water’s surface. The scientists say their bionic microbot incorporates improvements over previous devices that make it an ideal candidate for military spy missions, water pollution monitoring and other applications.

The robot has a body about the size of a quarter to which ten water-repellent, wire legs and two moveable, oar-like legs are attached. While the 10 long legs extending from either side of the robot’s body keep it afloat, the two shorter, centrally-located, oar-like legs powered by two miniature motors propel it across the surface of the water.

The scientists say that al...

HUMAN LIKE MULTICONTACT ROBOTIC DRONES SHOWS OFF ITS PACES IN VIDEO

VIDEO OF A MULTI CONTACT HUMAN LIKE WALKING ROBOTIC DRONE

The AMBER Lab in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Texas A&M University focuses on both theoretical and experimental research in bipedal robotics, locomotion, nonlinear and hybrid systems, and prosthetic design. AMBER Lab researchers recently demonstrated the human-like, multi-contact locomotion on their bipedal robot AMBER2. The robot has achieved sustainable walking with heel-life and toe-strike behaviors via torque control. Three different types of actuation are exhibited throughout the walking gait – full actuation, underactuation, and over-actuation.
