RoboCrab: A Horseshoe Crab Inspired Amphibious Robot for Righting in Surf Zones



entry into aquatic environments through the surf set is particularly difficult for amphibious robots a new surf zone robot is inspired by horseshoe crabs which are built for effective surf entry with minimal mass and power the walking gait was developed from the mechanics of horseshoe crab walking which uses the vacuum-form shell for support and the legs for propulsion and granular media in the event of the wave forces or turbulence invert the robot it is able to dynamically sense and correct its orientation on regular and irregular surfaces using it stelson this ability for reliable movement through dynamic and previously limiting environments will increase the reliability and applicability of future amphibious robots
