Centipede Type Robot i-CentiPot: From Machine to Creatures

Obstacle-avoidance ability of i-CentiPot

In this study, we have developed a centipede-like multi-legged robot named i-CentiPot. This robot was developed to demonstrate our concept presented in the CREST project. In the project, we show that the existence of implicit control is important. i-CentiPot plays the part of the anchor example for our project.*
