Tracked robots are often used in search & rescue and other challenging missions. Most can’t change their shape to adapt to new environments though. This Shape Changing Continuous Track Robot is different. It is actuated using only 2 motors and can change its shape to climb over obstacles and pass over objects without touching them.

The RCTR was developed at the Bio-Inspired and Medical Robotics Lab. As the above video shows, this robot can take on grass, rocky surfaces, and other uneven terrain.
