Researchers of the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, who have undersigned many different scientific researches and technologies, have developed an interesting cube called Cubli that can balance itself.
The robot Cubli, which is 15 x 15 x 15 cm in size and prepared in a full square form, carries different sensors with rotating motors called “Reaction Wheels”, so it can balance itself very well or stay in balance by adjusting the motor torque on any of its corners. Cubli, which can make small jumps with the power generated by the sudden stop of the engines it carries, can also make controlled falls thanks to the engine torque. As a result of the combination of jumping, balancing and falling in a controlled manner, the robot, which can walk on its own, can reveal the processes within it with its open body structure.
Cubli, whose development work continues, can reveal the potential to explore from long distances on different planets. You can easily see what the robot can do with the help of the video below.
