Roboticists usually design robots with two to four legs, but an expanded understanding of kinematic motion could change how roboticists think about programming many-limbed robots. As derived from the article, kinematic motion is the generation of movement by modifying the body (i.e., a slithering snake). A new study by researchers at the University of Michigan found that a single mathematical model well represents a wide variety of motions, potentially revolutionizing robotic functionality.
