SALTO - Berkeley's leaping robot

Roboticists at UC Berkeley have designed a small robot that can leap into the air and then spring off a wall, or perform multiple vertical jumps in a row, resulting in the highest robotic vertical jumping agility ever recorded. The agility of the robot opens new pathways of locomotion that were not previously attainable. The researchers hope that one day this robot and other vertically agile robots can be used to jump around rubble in search and rescue missions.

It looks like "landing upright" will need to be SALTO's next achievement. I think landing upright is a much bigger math problem that jumping. Keep up the good work guys. I'd like to see it land upright when you get it down.

So basically they have reinvented the frog, give it a couple of years and the French will be serving Salto's in restaurants with a little salt and seasoning :D:squirrel:
