RiSE climbing robot

RiSE climbing robotRiSE is a small six-legged robot that climbs vertical terrain such as walls, trees and fences. RiSE’s feet have claws, micro-claws or sticky material, depending on the climbing surface. RiSE changes posture to conform to the curvature of the climbing surface and a fixed tail helps RiSE balance on steep ascents. RiSE is about 0.25 m long, weighs 2 kg, and travels 0.3 m/s.Almost as slow as a chameleon, but at least it doesn’t have the same, stupid two-steps-forward-one-step-backwards gait.
