We got inspired from the technology snake robots use to maneuver challenging terrains. They have individual actuators that look like caps with three holes parallel to its axis on the periphery of the actuator. We can connects number of those actuators together using strings and manipulating the strings can bring different movements to the snake robot structure. This motions produced look organic and the manipulation of the neck could be done using servos. We borrowed some individual link actuators from a Robotics Institute PhD student to make our neck portion of the ostrich.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
