Amphibious Snake module design

January 28, 2010

2DOF snake module controlled wirelessly using Xbee RF.

The above module can be controlled manually using a GUI from the laptop.Has a custom made Xbee RF USB-Serial transceiver.Also has a wireless camera in the head module which gives live video feed.The use of bellows in the design gives it a flexibility about the joint similar to the natural Snake.
