Spider Robot Climbs Trees, Scales Walls!

(All Headline News)

New York, New York (AHN) - A new robot may be climbing a tree near you.

Experts from Carnegie Mellon and selected Universities have come together to create a robot capable of climbing trees, as well as other vertical surfaces.

The robot is the result of the RiSE (Robots in Scansorial Environments) Project.

The project "is to create a bioinspired climbing robot with the unique ability to walk on land and climb on vertical surfaces."

According to RiSE, the project studies novel robot kinematics, precision-manufactured compliant feet and appendages, and advanced robot behaviors.

The work has been sponsored by the Biologically Inspired Multifunctional Dynamic Robotics (BIODYNOTICS) Program from the Defense Sciences Office
