Main Archive TAU develops "robot locust" to assist in disaster management

Tel Aviv University researcher develops locust-inspired robot capable of jumping twice as high as existing robots of its kind.

Locust TAU disaster management robotSince the 1980s, advanced robotic platforms have provided assistance to crisis intervention teams in the wake of man-made and natural disasters. The objective of such robots, in various sizes and shapes, has been to intervene where humans cannot and send life-saving data to rescue teams in the field. 

A new miniature robot is poised to make a major contribution to the field of advanced robotics. The new locust-inspired robot, dubbed "TAUB" (for "Tel Aviv University and Ort Braude College"), is five inches long and weighs less than one ounce. It can jump 11 feet high — more than twice the height of similar-sized robots — and cover a horizontal distance of 4.5 feet in one leap. The researchers believe the TAUB will perform well in search-and-rescue missions and in reconnaissance operations in rough terrain.
