Terradynamics could help engineers design better robots for Mars

The field of terradynamics is advancing rapidly because Georgia Tech scientists discovered a simple way of describing the motion of legged robots on granular surfaces.

Terradynamics could help engineers design better robots for Mars

Science Recorder | James Fluere | Friday, March 22, 2013

Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology are working to create and advance the field of "terradynamics," also known as the study of how small legged robots move on and interact with sand and other granular materials. Terradynamics could improve legged robots working in a variety of environments such as space explorations or search-and-rescue missions... To continue reading, subscribe to Science Recorder today.
