A six-legged autonomous robotic spider jointly developed by Nanyang Polytechnic of Singapore, Schmid Engineering AG and Analog Devices has been designed to support rescue operations.

The robot's highly mobile walking scheme design consists of six independent legs that move the robot, even across rough terrain. Walking and rotating are among the basic motions adopted from six-legged insects. With three legs moving and three lifted, the robot can reach the desired walking speed and provide sufficient equilibrium required for harsh terrain.

It can avoid obstacles and access tight spots to help rescue trapped victims.
