Abstract

The novel aerial landing gear we propose has multiple articulated legs requiring no flat facilities such as landing fields. Smooth landing in rough terrain is enabled by multiple articulated legs changing shape and mechanical impedance as needed. For soft landings, it decreases velocity from fast to slow. Mechanical leg design is discussed and soft landing performance demonstrated.
