Simple schemes for analyzing the kinematics of hyper-redundant robot locomotion over solid terrain are considered. These schemes are based on the concepts of amplitude varying and traveling wave gaits, which are idealized models of inchworm and caterpillar locomotion. The kinematics of these gaits is formulated for hyper-redundant robots of both constant and variable length for locomotion over both flat and irregular terrain. Hyper-redundant locomotion concepts are applied to a novel grasping and fine manipulation scheme based on a grasping wave
