Snake Robot

snake robot



This is a Snake robot. It can constrict and curl up trees to get to higher places, and moves in a very natural, snakelike way. Its body is made up of 16 motors, and has a camera head for sight. To get up trees, it can curl around them and then roll up the tree. To move, one part of the snake grips the ground, while the other moves it forward.

This relates to engineering because the snake uses motors and mechanical elements to move around. It also most likely took many attempts to make this work.
