Rhodri Armour et al. introduced the two robots, Jollbot and Glumper, in a recent issue of Bioinspiration & Biomimetics. Jumping robots could provide solutions to traveling across rough terrain, such as climbing stairs and jumping fences, that normally create obstacles for wheeled robots and walking robots. The researchers hope that Jollbot and Glumper, with their biologically inspired mechanisms, will serve as prototypes for future generations of space robots.
