A Lego Technic snake that moves based ontwisting the spine mimicking realistic snake locomotion has been posted previously:
The downside of that concept was the lackof any steering capability. In the present EV3 controlled version a second synchronous motor was added. This allows for controlled stopping of the front motor. The second motor pushes the snake around the turn given by the level of bending of the front part of the snake. This is a very primitive approach, but it allows adding steering capability making the EV3-Cobra a remote controlled
Lego Technic snake.
This concept is in principle open foradding additional two motors for more complex locomotion and increased control functionality. Unfortunately the original Lego cables are too short and rigid.
