another bio-propelled climbing robot intended to scale smooth vertical surfaces has been introduced. The robot, called Stickybot, draws its motivation from geckos and other climbing reptiles and utilizes comparable consistence and drive control techniques to climb smooth vertical surfaces. M. Cutkosky, et al., "Entire body attachment: various leveled, directional and appropriated control of cement strengths for a climbing robot," Proc. ICRA 2007, pp. 1268-1273. A bipedal hopping and landing robot with simulated musculoskeletal framework motivated on a creature has been exhibited. Tests demonstrated the capacities of the robot to acknowledge vertical bouncing. Reference: R. Niiyama, A. Nagakubo, Y. Kuniyoshi, "Mowgli: A bipedal hopping and landing robot with a counterfeit musculoskeletal framework", in Proc. of ICRA, pp. 2546-2551, 2007. A humanoid two-arm framework created as an examination stage for studying able two-gave control. Two arms and hands are joined with a three degrees-of-opportunity portable middle and a visual framework to shape a total humanoid abdominal area.
