Environment-aware Amphibious Bionic Robot Based on the Combination of Hexapod Structure and Underwater Thrusters

Yuhao Liu, Zishi Zhang, Changxing Zhang, Wentao Chen, Yuliang Li, Genghao Lin


The operating environments of amphibious robots are mostly off shore shallow areas or transition areas at the junction of land and water, which require amphibious robots to be able to operate not only underwater but also on land, or at the junction of both. Based on the analysis of the latest progress of amphibious bionic robot research at home and abroad, a set of hexapod bionic structure is designed based on the insect prototype, combined with the underwater propulsion system to realize the composite mechanism of amphibious robot crawling and swimming.
