Cockroach robot grows tail, does flips

UC Berkeley’s Biomimetic Millisystems Lab, headed by Ron Fearing, has years of experience building all kinds of different flavors of robotic roaches, many of which have been modeled fairly closely on actual roaches. However, their latest roachbot (presented at IROS 2017) makes a notable departure from the original insect: It’s got a tail, which actual cockroaches don’t, meaning that it can flip itself over with ease.

NEUTRIK® FIBERFOX

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Neutrik

Fiber optic technology has seen exponential growth over the last couple years. Today, fiber optic technology is finding a place in more and more diverse applications worldwide. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and David Kuklinski from NEUTRIK® explore a revolutionary new kind of fiber optic technology called FIBERFOX. We take a closer look at the benefits that FIBERFOX brings to the table, why FIBERFOX's expanded beam technology makes it unlike any other fiber optic technology on the market today and how you can use FIBERFOX in your next design.
