The Robot Locust

The Robot Locust
The robot locust is small in size but can jump 11 feet high and cover a horizontal distance of 4.5 feet in one leap. The robot’s features allow it to be used for search-and-rescue missions and in reconnaissance operations in rough terrain. This miniature “locust” robot is poised to make a major contribution to the field of advanced robotics.
