 The RHex project aims to develop a six legged robot, capable of achieving a wide variety of dynamically dextrous tasks, such as walking, running, leaping over obstacles, climbing stairs, with a single autonomous platform. Our emphasis is on mechanical simplicity and the exploration of control strategies designed to work with the natural dynamics of the robot.
