The Virgo is the smallest bio-inspired spherical rolling miniature robot designed for multi-agent intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance in an urban environment. To advance the miniaturisation of robotic-based technologies to support locomotion, sensing and adaptive autonomy, it uses novel mechatronic design that allows the seamless integration of modules in a complex multi-modal structural and functional system.
