A Cockroach Inspired Robot with Artificial Muscles

The Biologically Inspired Robotics Laboratory at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) has created many unique robots. This research paper describes the process of designing and constructing one of the newest creations, a robotic cockroach. Weighing over 30 pounds, the CWRU Robot V is much larger than its real-life counterpart but its design closely approximates the movements of an actual roach. Some background about previous work is given in this paper followed by a detailed look at the characteristics and operation of the Robot V. Much more of the lab's work can be discovered at its homepage.
