What’s better than a snake robot? Maybe one that combines with a drone to take on more challenging missions. This video from KAERI Robot lab shows a flying snake robot that can inspect high altitude and narrow areas. It consists of a drone with grippers to catch the snake robot. The drone moves the snake to remote areas.
The snakebot has various modes of locomotion. It takes a C shape to work with the drone. The snake robot can move in a pipe or narrow areas not accessible to the drone.
