Hey roboticists! Let’s check out a featured hexapod robot coming from the UCLA RoMeLA lab: SiLVIA (Six Legged Vehicle with Intelligent Articuluation). Thanks to its long legs and high-powered servos, SiLVIA is able to scale vertical walls while holding its body in place between two surfaces! Check out the video showing SiLVIA climbing below:
As you can see in the video, SiLVIA uses its onboard computer to plan its trajectories before moving with great results!
In addition, the team behind SiLVIA have released a research paper with their research which you can check out at the following link!
