Gait Optimization for Bio-Inspired Robotics

A bio-inspired platform for a search and rescue vehicle with optimized stride length and frequency at various saturation levels of sand is the goal of this research. Measurements and observations of the animal, Basiliscus basiliscus or the basilisk lizard, have provided baseline stride length, frequency, weight, and gait parameters. Variance of stride length and frequency are tested with the developed robot and optimized results are presented. Future work includes scalability of the platform and application in space exploration.
