Technical implementation in the BionicKangaroo
BionicKangaroo – energy-efficient jump kinematics based on a natural model.
With the BionicKangaroo, Festo has technologically reproduced the unique way a kangaroo moves.
Like its natural model, it can recover the energy when jumping, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.
Festo paid particular attention to the mobile energy supply on the artificial kangaroo.
For this purpose, the team even developed two different concepts – one with an integrated compressor and one with a mobile high-pressure storage device.

On the artificial kangaroo, Festo intelligently combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology to produce a highly dynamic system. The stable jump kinematics plus the precise control technology ensure stability when jumping and landing.
