MuddyBot in trackway

Image shows a robot – dubbed “MuddyBot” – that used the locomotion principles of the mudskipper to move through a trackway filled with granular materials. The robot used two limbs and a powerful tail to move through the trackway, which could be raised to provide a sloping surface. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
