Introduction: Grasshopper Pneumatic Tensegrity Robot

For this study I was trying to explore the possibility to create a Pneumatic Tensegrity Robot for deployment at Mars. This project was founded by NASA and was under the instruction of Dr. Landolf Rhode-Barbarigos and Dr. Ju Hong Park. Some details will be released after the project presentation. (April 2018)
