Legged Robots are Far Superior to Wheels and Tracks When Venturing Outdoors

Mar 6, 2017 @ 20:00 |  The Legged robots are far superior to wheeled and tracked autonomous vehicles in real-world field applications but at cost of motion controlling complexity. Ghost Robotics, a leader in fast and lightweight direct-drive (gearless) legged robots, announced that its patent-pending Ghost Minitaur™ has been updated with advanced reactive behaviors for […]

Dyke Inspection Robot Will Be Energy Autonomous

Dyke Inspection Robot Will Be Energy Autonomous

Nov 10, 2016 @ 18:36 |  Future robots that continuously inspect our dikes won’t come across an electrical charging station every few hours. Using a smart gear box for the robot, a researcher has managed to drastically reduce the energy consumption. The energy-autonomous robot comes closer. Inspecting the condition of dykes and other sea defence […]
