A snake robot will go through any type of terrain and have many degrees of freedom for motion.

Howie Choset, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, received an NSF award for "Optimal Gaits and Designs in Locomoting Systems." He is interested in designing a snake robot that not only understands how to chart its path through any type of terrain, but has many degrees of freedom for motion for a variety of applications.
