The robot will reveal all the secrets of the horned rattlesnake

With the help of a specially designed robot, American researchers first described how the rattlesnakes climb the sand dunes.

Observing the behavior of snakes on the artificial dune, they found that on steep slopes animals tightly pressed against the surface to increase the area of ​​contact of the body with sand. Then they checked the knowledge gained on the abilities of robotic snakes and calculated the optimal strategy for the movement of snakes and robots that climbed the sandy slopes without slipping. The full text of this research was published in the scientific journal “Magazine”.
