Snake Robots

The main challenge in designing snake robots deals with putting actuated joints in a tight volume where we minimize the length and cross sectional areas of the links between the joints. The main concept of our design, as well as many others, is to stack two degree-of-freedom joints on top of each other, forming a snake robot. There are three main schools of designs for these kinds of robots: actuated universal joints, angular swivel joints and angular bevel joints.
