Abstract
A prototype of a steerable six-legged hopping robot for exploring low-gravity environments was designed, built, and tested. A 35 cm vertical hop was achieved, motorized steering of all six legs was demonstrated over a 40-degree range, and angled hopping was performed at a fixed 60-degree angle. Gyro stabilization was demonstrated through a hopping simulation of a modeled hopping robot with a controllable flywheel in lunar gravity.
