constructions and projects are generally grand. Yet the key to successful
operation depends on little details that are often no easy access for
inspection and maintenance. The snake robotic arm invented by OC Robotics
provides an effective solution to access confined and hazardous space that is
off limits to conventional human or machines.
Designed to be slim
and flexible, the snake arm can skillfully fit and move through small gaps in
between industrial objects. The
snake-like wriggling movement is attributed to the mechanical power provided by
maxon motors (located in an actuator at the base of the robot) and
self-supporting joints to stabilize continuous changes of directions.
