A jumping robot capable of moving on a ground and jumping over a surmountable obstacle is introduced. The robot patrols a harsh environment by rolling or jumping, delivering environmental information to user. While conventional robots usually detour for any kind of encountered obstacles by rolling or climbing, the jump robot jumps over the obstacle once it is surmountable. This dedicates to saving time and excluding a complicated mechanism design usually adopted for an obstacle-overcoming robot. All environments around the robot are monitored via wireless communication and robot commands are communicated between a remote placed client computer and robot server computer through an Internet.
