Robot named Snakebot Biorobotics Lab was created by Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh, United States. As quoted from Cnet, Sunday (09/05/2010), capable of twisting himself Snakebot said on poles, trees and walking into the pipe vertically.

Snakebot a meandering run was even able to shake the tail on the tree, looking around him through the head contains a camera and even more amazing he was able to sing the national anthem of the U.S. 'Star-Spangled Banner' that made him get the nickname 'Uncle Sam'.

The robot has apparently been used in disaster training and are expected to someday be able to search and rescue operation in the field condition which does not allow people to enter it.

Modular robot is built from segments of sensors and actuators that enable it to alter the length and easy to be assembled again.

Researchers at CMU noted that in the experiment to climb trees, new Snakebot can climb on tree trunks with a certain width.

"The investigators worked to design, build and program a robot. But much remains to be repaired so that the robot was able to climb higher trees of various sizes of trees and to facilitate navigation of the branch and cable," said the Carnegie Mellon University.
