Self Jumping Robot

Design Brief

The design must be reliable and achieve the set target specifications of 1m jump height and 1m travel distance. The robot should cost less than £100 and a weight of less than 200 g. 

Jumping Procedure


Gear Train

Project Highlights

Designed and engineered a unique jumping mechanism


Developed a full-scale CAD model

Produced technical drawings

Design Engineering Process

Studied current jumping robot designs and used geared toys as inspiration to create cheap and efficient gear systems. 

Prototyped using toy gearboxes to develop proposed gear system designs for launch and landing mechanisms. 

Designed and engineered subsystems including the battery type, motor type, and launch & landing mechanisms. 

Used fundamental mechanics equations, FEA, and material analysis to iterate and validate the design.
