Project Summary Project Information

Problem Description

The primary objective of this project is to create a soft, deployable, expandable/inflatable air or water propelled walking robot. The robot should start contained within or attached to an RC vehicle then be capable of walking a minimum of 10 feet away from the RC vehicle. The robot should be capable of walking in a straight line then it should be deflated and returned to the RC vehicle. The pneumatic/hydraulic capabilities should build upon previously developed soft, inflatable robotic capabilities.
