Article by Gupta and students named a 'most-cited paper' by Bioinspiration & Biomimetics

“A survey of snake-inspired robot designs,” published in the June 2009 issue of Bioinspiration & Biomimetics, has been named to the journal’s list of its most-cited papers in the past two years.

Written by Professor S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) and his Ph.D. students James K. Hopkins and Brent W. Spranklin, the article reports different types of snake-inspired robot designs and categorizes them based on their main characteristics. For each category, the authors discuss their relative advantages and disadvantages.

The journal previously selected the article to be included in its “Highlights of 2009” collection.
