-A robot that has the advantage of both wheels’ fast and smooth locomotion capability on flat ground and legs’ capability on rough terrain navigation. - The robot has four leg-wheel modules. Each leg-wheel module is composed of two half-circle legs and can be driven to rotate and move radially with respect to the hip joint, where the motion is similar to the definition of the 2-degrees-of-freedom polar coordinates. When the legs form a circle and rotate, the robot moves like an ordinary four-wheeled vehicle, and when the legs are extended, the robot moves like a quadruped.

Lots of exciting stuff in store for 2019, but on this #throwbackthursday we thought we'd take a minute to look back at some of the cool projects we've done in the past.
