Kovač M, Wassim-Hraiz, Fauria O, Zufferey JC, Floreano Det al., 2011, The EPFL jumpglider: A hybrid jumping and gliding robot with rigid or folding wings, Pages: 1503-1508

Recent work suggests that wings can be used to prolong the jumps of miniature jumping robots. However, no functional miniature jumping robot has been presented so far that can successfully apply this hybrid locomotion principle. In this publication, we present the development and characterization of the 'EPFL jumpglider', a miniature robot that can prolong its jumps using steered hybrid jumping and gliding locomotion over varied terrain. For example, it can safely descend from elevated positions such as stairs and buildings and propagate on ground with small jumps. The publication presents a systematic evaluation of three biologically inspired wing folding mechanisms and a rigid wing design. Based on this evaluation, two wing designs are implemented and compared 1. © 2011 IEEE.
