Abstract

The purpose of this project was to determine the feasibility of a lizard inspired tail for the dynamic stabilization of robotic bodies during aerial or aggressive maneuvers. A mathematical model was created to determine the effects of various tail designs. A physical model of the tail design was fabricated and used to determine feasibility of the design and evaluate the mathematical model.
