Snake-based sliding BEAMbots

Snakes are sliding BEAMbots that propel themselves via a horizontal wave motion. Only a few experimental ones have been built to date.





For more information...

You definitely want to check out "The Motion Dynamics of Snakes and Worms."

GMD's Collection of Snake-like Robots is a good set of links to pages on snake motion and robots modelled on snakes.
