This video showcases the DAGSI Whegs, the latest generation of full-size Whegs robots. Whegs vehicles use abstracted biological principles to navigate over irregular and varied terrain with little or no low-level control. Torsionally compliant devices in the drive train of each wheel-leg allow its gait to passively adapt when climbing large obstacles or steep inclines. The foot motion of all 6 legs is circular, has 3 leg-spokes, 1 drive motor, leg rotation for steering, passive gait adaptation, and a body joint.
