While legged robots are able to perform feats such as climbing stairs, their wheeled counterparts are faster and less complex.
The Ascento robot offers the best of both worlds, as it has two jumping legs – each one with a wheel on the bottom.
Developed by a team of engineering students at Switzerland’s ETH Zurich research institute, Ascento is now in its second incarnation, called Ascento 2.
The robot can be seen in jumping and rolling action, in the following video.
