Designing Bio-inspired Robotic Hooves

😎 New DIY robot kits

Researchers are inspired by nature all the time to improve the design of their robots. This video from Robomechanics Lab presents a robotic foot inspired by mechanical aspects of goat hooves. These guys studied:

the shape of the toes that grab rock features, the compliance of the foot pads that result in a concave contact patch, the separate toes that can maintain contact at high slope angles, and the combination of hard and soft materials.
