Entrepreneurially Minded Engineering Design and Development of a Novel Snake-like Robot
My dissertation discusses the development of a novel 1-inch snake-like robot capable of driving, drilling, seeing, and pulling wires through walls. It also has applications in space exploration and aiding trapped victims following natural disasters.
Due to Intellectual Property concerns I can only publish limited information about the project but please contact me if you would like more details.
The project was selected as a 2nd place national finalist in the 2016 Lemelson-MIT Student Invention Competition.
The video below, part of my entry, provides a brief introduction to the project:
