Japanese company HiBot, specialized in robots for extreme environments, will unveil the latest version of its ACM-R5H snake robot at the International Robot Exhibition (iREX) this week in Tokyo.
HiBot says the new model is more modular and easier to customize that earlier versions. You can easily attach more segments to the snake’s body to make it longer, or remove segments if you need a shorter robot. Users can also use payload compartments in the snake’s front and rear modules to add custom sensors or cameras. The new ACM-R5H uses HiBot’s advanced robot controller based on an ARM Cortex-M4 processor.
