Reconfigurable Robot Can Climb Up Its Own Track

David Zarrouk’s lab at Ben Gurion University, in Israel, is well known for developing creative, highly mobile robots that use a minimal number of actuators. Their latest robot is called RCTR (Reconfigurable Continuous Track Robot), and it manages to change its entire body shape on a link-by-link basis, using just one extra actuator to “build its own track in the air as it advances.”
