  • We have reported before on robots inspired by insects including cockroach-inspired mighty robots.
  • This voltage increases the electrostatic force between the footpad and a surface, making that footpad stick more firmly and forcing the rest of the robot to rotate around the foot.
  • For these kinds of missions, the researchers demonstrated a battery power-operated version of the tiny robots that could last for up to 19 minutes and 31 meters while carrying a gas sensor.
