  • Title: "Modular Snake Robots"
  • Event: Training on modular robot
  • Speaker: Dr. Juan González-Gómez
  • Duration: 30h
  • Place: National Robotics & Intelligent Systems Center. King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST). Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
  • Date: March, 8th/2011


Some of our current research on the locomotion of modular snake robots are introduced. The control algorithm developed are bio-inspired. They are based on simplified Central Pattern Generators (CPGs) working as sinusoidal generators that enables the robot to perform locomotion gaits such as rolling, sidewinding and rotating among others. Different configurations of modular robots will be explained and some live demonstration will be performed.
