Robotics inspired by the animal kingdom



  Stickybot is a climbing robot developed at Stanford Universit and its a mix of biology, mechanics and motion











Cheetah Cub Robot:  a compliant quadruped robot with the size of a cat, or a young cheetah cub.  

The robot weights 1kg and is approximately 21cm long. It reaches 1.42m/s speed, almost seven body lengths per second. This makes Cheetah-cub robot the fastest running quadruped legged robot under 30kg. The four-legged cheetah cub robot can run at 3.2 miles an hour

Fish Robot

One of the most popular animals for the development of bioinspired robots is the fish.
This type of biomimetic robot is a valuable tool to study not only mechanistics aspects of swimming behavior but also to study the basis of social behavior in animals and robots.

For more information on all the robotics fish developed so far go to
