Abstract:

Snakes perform many kinds of movement adapted to different environments. Utilizing the snake as a model, we have developed a two-dimensional snake-like robot that emulates a snakes' function. To make our robot move optimally while adapting to the slope of the environment, in this study we discuss the influence of the gradient of a slope on the creeping locomotion of the robot and derive optimal creeping locomotion curves that adapted to the given slopes.
