Abstract

SuperBot is a modular, multifunctional and reconfigurable robotic system built for NASA applications. This paper reports the hardware and software design of the 20 SuperBot modules and experimental results for multifunctional behaviors, which include a set of long-distance running of 1 km/hour with batteries, and a climbing on a large sand dune.
