|Project Summary||Project Information|
Robotter 2.0 is a robot that can both walk on land and swim through water. Inspired by previous MSD projects, such as the robo-fish and robo-ant, this robot displays amphibious capabilities and is meant to aesthetically resemble an otter. It's goal is to mimic the transition of otters in and out of the water, walking on land, and swimming on the surface, resulting in a product that can be used for military, research, and investigation purposes in the future.
Amphibious robots are seen as a new technology in the robotics field. Similar to real animals that can transition between water and land, this robot is designed to have full locomotion on both land and water, providing not only flexibility, but agility and resistance. An similar example of this is the "Pleurobot", an experimental robot designed to mimic the behavior of a salamander.
