Abstract

This article presents our current work on studying energy efficient locomotion on crawling snake-like robots. The aim of this work is to use existing biological inspired methods to demonstrate lateral undulation planar gaits for efficiently controlling high-speed motion as a function of the terrain surface. A multilink non-wheeled snake-like robot is being developed for experimentation and analysis of efficient serpentine locomotion based on simulation results.
