Pleurobot: Multimodal Locomotion In A Bioinspired Robot

The Pleurobot is a bioinspired robot being developed by the BioRob at EPFL and NCCR Robotics. Taking it’s cues from the salamander, the Pleurobot is a walking robot that can change its gait to help it to navigate uneven terrain, and is currently learning to swim. Watch the video to see the researchers discuss what they are doing with the Pleurobot and how they hope to improve it in future.
