HAMR-E Harvard Ambulatory Micro-Robot with Electrodehesion, Harvard University Has Made A Micro-Robot That Walks Upside Down New York: Engineers have created a micro robot with sticky feet that can climb up, down and all.

HAMR-E has a special walking pattern with three foot pads always touching the surface during leg swinging The tiny robot, called HAMR-E (Harvard Ambulatory Micro-Robot with Electrodehesion), weighs 1.48 grams and has electro-adhesive foot pads, origami ankle joints, and specially engineered walking gait, Det er den første og mest overbevisende trinn som viser muligheten for en centimeter-skala klatring Robot and it could be used in the future to "explore any kind of infrastructure, including buildings, pipes, engines, generators," said Robert Wood at Harvard University.

The tiny robot, called HAMR-E (Harvard Ambulatory Micro-Robot with Electrodehesion), weighs 1.48 grams and has electro-adhesive foot pads, origami ankle joints, and specially engineered walking gait,

Det er den første og mest overbevisende trinn som viser muligheten for en centimeter-skala klatring Robot and it could be used in the future to “explore any kind of infrastructure, including buildings, pipes, engines, generators,” said Robert Wood at Harvard University.

HAMR-E’s foot pad was equipped with a polyimide-insulated copper electrode two genes

The foot pads can be easily released and re-engaged by switching the electric field on and off, which operates at a voltage similar to that of the pads.

The pads are flexible, allowing the robot to climb on curved or uneven surfaces.

They also use the robot’s legs to keep the robot from sliding down or falling off. Created origami-like ankle joints that can rotate in three dimensions to compensate for rotation of its legs as it walks, ensuring its orientation.

HAMR-E also has a special walking pattern with three foot pads always touching the surface during the leg -wing.

When tested on vertical and inverted surfaces, it was able to achieve more than 1

00 steps in a row without detaching.

The robot can also walk around a curved, inverted section in a jet engine. [19659004] “Now that these robots can e xplore in three dimensions instead of just moving back and forth on a flat surface, there’s a whole new world that they can move around and engage with, “said lead author Sebastien de Rivaz, a former research fellow at the Harvard University who now works at Apple.

“They could one day enable non-invasive inspection of hard-to-reach areas of large machines, saving companies time and money and making those machines safer,” Rivaz added.
