Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB002-035
Budget: 03/14/02 - 06/30/04

In Phase I, we conducted exploratory research into hybrid locomotive modalities toward achieving the Compliant Surface Robotics (CSR) goals. We researched technologies and designs that would enable a wheeled vehicle to be integrally designed with actively controlled articulated structures to develop a "morphable" vehicle, with over-determined l...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB002-035
Budget: 01/08/01 - 09/04/01

This proposal seeks to conduct exploratory research to develop hybrid locomotion techniques that enable a wide range of traction capabilities at small scale to achieve the Compliant Surface Robotics (CSR) goals. The concepts we intend to examine extend current capabilities of wheeled vehicles into "morphable" articulated systems, with overdeter...
