The Swiss have created a «walking» drones

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) has developed a new small UAV DALER (Deployable Air Land Exploration Robot), which is also able to move on the ground, using as a «leg» own wings. As reported by The Register, the introduction of wings for movement on the ground allows us to simplify the design and improve its drone patency. Wings UAV mounted on pivoting mechanisms that when flying fixed aerodynamic surface in a horizontal position, and when you move on the ground — spinning. According to EPFL, DALER able to move across the surface at a speed of up to

Cheetah-Cub, designed in Switzerland, the robot cat

Scientists from the laboratory biorobotics Federal Polytechnic School (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland built a four-legged walking robot that mimics the movement of walking cats. About bot says in a press release EPFL.   Any of the four limbs bot has been called Cheetah-Cub («cheetah cub»), consists of 3 sections, connected by springs, and the structure resembles a cat’s paw.   Limbs are driven motors. «Head» bot not, and the place of the «tail» is the wire.   Pluses bot — light weight (about a kilogram), the ability to move over uneven surfaces, and the highest rate.   Cheetah-Cub —

Swiss robokota Cheetah-Cub prepared for rescue operations

18.06.2013

Laboratory specialists biorobototehniki of the École Polytechnique (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland was designed treading platform that can move around in the manner of a cat cross-country run at relatively high for this type of equipment speeds.  

The prototype robot called Cheetah-Cub («cheetah cub"), has a mass of about a kilogram and is fitted with four legs like a cat on the servo, because of which it is written in the EPFL, is moving faster than any analog weighing less than 30 kilograms. Robosobaka BigDog from Boston Dynamics weighing over a hundred pounds easily
