We have introduced the biomechanical research on snakes and developmental research on snake-like robots that we have been working on. We could not introduce everything we developed. There were also a smaller snake-like active endoscope; a large-sized snake-like inspection robot for nuclear reactor related facility, Koryu, 1 m in height, 3.5 m in length, and 350 kg in weight; and several other snake-like robots. Development of snake-like robots is still one of our latest research topics. We feel that the technical difficulties in putting snake-like robots into practice have almost been overcome by past research, so we believe that such practical use of snake-like robots can be realized soon.
