From artistic vision to hardware, here’s how to make Spot dance
Engineers use a few different techniques that employed both Spot’s Choreographer software and its API to make Spot dance.
Quadruped learns to adapt to changing terrain in real time
The base policy and adaptation module are run asynchronously and at different frequencies, which allows RMA to operate robustly with only a small onboard computer.
Similarity of legs, wheels, tracks suggests target for energy-efficient robots
U.S. Army findings suggest human-made legged platforms should be as efficient as wheeled and tracked platforms.
Quadruped learns to adapt its legs to changing terrain
The robot uses a camera to see how rough the terrain is, and it uses sensors in the legs to feel how hard the walking surface is.
Designing a quadruped controlled & powered by pneumatics
This quadruped developed at UCSD relies on a series of valves that open and close in a specific sequence to walk.
Marc Raibert on lessons learned from Atlas’ dance skills
We’ve learned a lot over the last month about how Boston Dynamics’ robots became such talented dancers. We now know the RBR50 company employed human dancers, reflexive control, simulation and new Choreographer software, among many other techniques. But we’ve yet to hear from Marc Raibert, founder, former CEO, and now chairman of Boston Dynamics. Until…
