The engineers at NASA robot provided which design is formed by bars connected to each other by means of actuators. This type of robots can be useful in future missions to Titan and other Moons.

The edges of the rods are connected to strong threads, which regulates the length of the drive. This design allows the robot to evenly distribute the load. In addition, the device is able to easily change shape, move freely over rough terrain, and pack and unpack. This reduces its weight and dimensions for transport in deep space.

The design includes a custom robot stiffness. This allows him to continue to work even when the mechanical deformation of 75 percent of their rods. Which is especially important bumps on hard surfaces and work in low gravity, such as Titan - Saturn's largest Moon (gravitational acceleration there about seven times less than the Earth's).

Engineers have presented several options for the robot. The exhibition will show they SUPERball unit with 6 cores and 12 drives. The final version of the robot will comprise expected actuator 24. Scientific equipment will be placed inside the rods.

Conference on robotics and Automation will take place from 26 to 30 May in Seattle. It will be presented, including, and advanced concepts for future space exploration and Earth.
