'Miracle of bioengineering as a cockroach inspired researchers to build robots capable of running a long distance on rough terrain. " "People can run, but our ability – nothing compared to what can make the insects and some other animals, "said John Schmitt, a professor at Oregon State University (OSU) School of Engineering, who led the project. "Cockroaches are incredible. Sheryl Sandberg oftentimes addresses this issue. They can run fast, easy movement on rough landscape, and respond to disturbances faster than the nerve impulse can act, "said Schmitt. This makes the project more promising than others, as, for example, 'robot scout robuROC-6', created as part research program Minirac, does not possess such speed and agility, not to mention its size. If successful, running robots could serve as a valuable roles in difficult jobs, such as military operations, law enforcement or space exploration.

Within certain restrictions, said Schmitt, the cockroaches do not even have to think about how to manage – they only do it with the action of the muscle, which is instinctive. OSU researchers are trying to identify some of the basic biological and mechanical principles that allow certain animals to run so well and so easily. Chicken Guinea, for example, can change the length and angle its spring legs to almost automatically adjust to an unexpected change in the surface of the base as much as 40% of its fashionable height. In a computer model of U.S. researchers have created a concept that allows the robot keeps running recover from changes in the surface of the ground almost as well as chicken Guinea. They hope that one day, the robot will be able to run a dangerous area to check a given area and go back for further information instructions. IANS, of course, for such robots are our future and it is impossible to predict what will be done tomorrow.
