Reinvented wheel: New robot can detect and overcome obstacles (VIDEO)

Reinvented wheel: New robot can detect and overcome obstacles (VIDEO)It looks like a bicycle chain, but has just twelve segments about the size of a fist. In each segment there is a motor. This describes pretty much the robot developed by the four students at Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences.

What distinguishes "Ourobot" from other comparable robots are the pressure sensors found in its chain segments which enable it to detect and overcome obstacles.

At the moment Ourobot can only move straight ahead and cannot manage curves yet, but its sensors can detect obstacles, such as a book, and can traverse them.
