Bio-Inspiration [Flying Frog]

February 18, 2018

Rhacophorus Malabaricus also know as "parachute frog"

The main characteristic of these animals are the strong membranes in between its toes and fingers, which allows them to glide from one tree to another to avoid their predators.

They can reach a distance of up to 15 meters, in addition, the large padded toes help them to adhere to the trees more firmly for a safe landing.


I would like to be able to use this extra extended mesh support and soft structural system in robots that require access to difficult terrains or smooth surfaces. This structure would have the same functions as the frogs, easily glide from one surface to another, and a perfect landing.
