SpaceBok: Planetary Exploration Quadruped Robot

Robotic Gizmos

In the future, advanced robots will be used to explore planets in our solar system and beyond. Plenty of researchers are currently working to perfect them. SpaceBok is a quadruped robot from a Swiss student team from ETH Zurich and ZHAW Zurich that is being used to study dynamic walking and jumping in low gravity environments.

This robot can jump up to 2 meters in lunar gravity. It uses a reaction wheel to control its orientation and maintain balance as it comes down.
