Researchers from the University of California College of Engineering in Berkeley will help to assess land at agricultural sites, collect marine data, and study the state of land and rock at construction sites.
When you look at sea crabs, it may seem like underground digging is a simple process, but the deeper the animal digs, the more the grains are pushed away, the more difficult the excavations are explained by the designers of the device.
In order to overcome this problem and create a vertical foot cop, researchers designed the robot's legs to respond to anithropic force, which means that they experience much more power in one direction than in the other. Like a swimmer, the robot's soft tissue legs expand with a lot of effort during the scavenging and then fold into the body.
The second problem was the pollution and failure of the machinery due to sands, which scientists also found in Emerita Analoga, and the engineers created a cuticulus similar to the arthrodial crab-crote membrane, which is a soft and flexible material that removes joint holes and prevents grains from coming in, but allows the robot to move freely.
Robots capable of exploring underground space can be used in a variety of industries and research areas; for example, they can measure the soil quality of potential agricultural land, conduct exploration prior to construction work, and explore the seabed.
