Kinematics of Snake locomotion

Alon Wolf

For this research we bring live snakes (don’t worry they are friendly snakes) and  study their kinematic and locomotion patterns using our Vicon motion tracking system.  We then analyze our data and utilize it to better design the mechanical structure of our snake robots and for path planning and motion control of these robots.
Our snakes (the live ones) are well taken care of by our “home” zoologist Mr. Doron Weinmann
