A Smoothly Flexible Segmented Snake Robot That Uses a Slithering Motion to Climb a Ladder

Robotic Snake

While at the 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2018), Japanese researchers Tatsuya Takemori, Motoyasu Tanaka, and Fumitoshi Matsuno from Kyoto University and the University of Electro-Communications, presented their remarkable flexible segmented snake robot, which employed a slithering motion to climb a ladder. This presentation was based upon their collective paper “Development and Future Extension of Snake-like Robots on ImPACT TRC Project“.
