StickyBot is a robot designed by researchers at Stanford Biomimetics and Dexterous Manipulation Lab as part of the Robots in Scansorial Environments project (RiSE). The robotic gecko tests their hypotheses about the “requirements for mobility on vertical surfaces using dry adhesion. The main point is that we don’t need more adhesion, we need controllable adhesion.”…
