, the snail intermediate host of Schistosoma japonicum, as an amphibious robot-based tool for schistosomiasis surveillance and response in the future.  ...  With the gaits, AmphiHex-I will have a strong locomotion ability in an amphibious environment, which is motivated by a novel public health application to detect the amphibious snail, Oncomelania hupensis  ...  One of the most important control approach in the national schistosomiasis control program is to eliminate Oncomelania hupensis, the snail intermediated host of Schistosoma japonicum.  ...
