Hallucigenia01

“Next-generation multi-purpose vehicles with eight wheel modules”

Hallucigenia 01 is an experimental prototype vehicle, manufactured at a scale of 1/5. Hallucigenia 01 can be classi´Čüed as a multi-joint robot with 32 motors. When all joints controlled, it demonstrates excellent maneuverability, for instance, it can rotate in a single spot or travel sideways with all eight wheels aligned in the same direction. Its lifting joints and swinging joints are controlled in real time for advanced mobility; it can climb a slope while keeping the body level and can go over steps. Its name, Hallucigenia, derives from an ancient creature that lived in the sea in the Cambrian period, Paleozoic Era.
