3.Complex drive robots SHRIMP III 6 driven wheels Two servos the change direction Many variants
4.SHRIMP III passes obstacles Obstacles comparable to robot size Stability 40 o pitch, 40 o roll Innovative kinematics A passive structure is the key innovating feature of this robot: it does not need to actively sense obstacles to be able to climb them. Instead, it simply moves forward and lets its mechanical structure adapt to the terrain profile. Overcoming made easy With its ingenious mechanical structure, Shrimp III guarantees an incredible mobility. It moves comfortably in all kinds of challenging settings, overcomes vertical obstacles up to twice its wheel size and can even climb stairs!
