V-REP Simulation of Worm-like Robot
This video shows a worm-like robot simulated in V-REP. The robot is composed by 49 segments and 48 active joints. Each segment has a pair of passive wheels under its belly. The worm is able to avoid obstacles (thus also self-collision) using an invisible proximity sensor mounted on the first segment. The whole control of the robot requires less than 100 lines of code.
Run time: 0:39 minutes.
