Robotic insect is a 6-legged robot that resembles and insect. The locomotion of the robot is implemented using muscle wires, which are part of a group of shape memory alloys (SMA) that will contract in length when heated.


  • Light weight
  • Locomotion using muscle wires
  • Movement synchronization using on-board microcontroller
  • Ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoidance.
  • Fully autonomous with battery
