PleurobotScientists from the EPFL’s Biorobotics Laboratory have created a new version of  the salamander like robot called Pleurobot.

Using x-rays and up to 64 tracking points, the scientists are able to accurately mimic a salamander’s gate.

Pleurobot uses 27 motors and 11 spinal segments to achieve walking, crawling and even swimming.

The video shows Pleurobot side by side with an x-ray video of a real salamander to show how precisely they have nailed Pleurobot’s gate.

This type of robot could potentially have other sensors added and be used for search and rescue type operations.
