Abstract

We present the design and implementation of a new jumping robot for mobile sensor network. Unlike other jumping robots, the robot is based on a simple two-mass-spring model. After we throw it on ground, it can stabilize itself and then jump once. The detailed mechanism design including the load holding and self-stabilization are presented. Jumping heights and distances with different robot weights are measured and compared with calculated values from the two-mass-spring model.
