The aim of the OrigaBot project is precisely to develop a brand-new class of reconfigurable origami-based structures for the design of multi-modal locomotion robots. The OrigaBot will feature a morphing frame enabling it to change its span and perform both terrestrial and aerial locomotion efficiently. Combining ground and aerial locomotion constitutes a smart energetic trade-off for navigating in a cluttered environment and saving energy. In response to the urgent need for robust robots that can be used in field missions, the OrigaBot project provides a unique opportunity for developing remotely piloted multi-modal terrestrial and aerial robots with an innovative actuated origami that can fold up on the spot.
