Robotic Tail Used to Improve Performance and Stability of Mobile Robots
THE CHALLENGE Natural and man-made disasters are becoming more and more commonplace. As these disasters increase in number, so does the need for, and risk to, first responders who search through rubble and rescue survivors. In response to these increased risks, legged mobile robots have emerged as a first response option as they can maneuver over uneven...
