Legged robots in action
Recent progress in the development of legged robots and their intelligence has led to systems that are skilled and mature enough for real-world deployment. In particular quadrupedal robots have reached a level of mobility to navigate complex environments, which enables them to take over inspection or surveillance jobs in place like offshore industrial plants, in underground areas, or on construction sites. In this talk, I will present our research work with the quadrupedal robot ANYmal and explain some of the underlying technologies for locomotion control, environment perception, and mission autonomy. I will show how this robot can learn and plan complex locomotion manoeuvres, how it can navigate through challenging environments and how it is able to conduct surveillance and inspection tasks with super-human precision.
