Zee: Hexapod robot for remote inspection
Zee is a prototype hexapod robot equipped with a streaming camera sensor and a real-time 3D scanning Lidar. This robot can be operated with a standard tablet or smartphone.
MAX: Multilegged Autonomous eXplorer
Multilegged Autonomous eXplorer (MAX), is an ultralight, six-legged robot for traversal and exploration of challenging indoor and outdoor environments.
Evolutionary approaches for legged robot control
Due to their morphologies, legged robots are ideal platforms for investigating biologically-inspired approaches to control and navigation.
Rescuebot: Legged robots with compliant joints
We are using elastic joints to make our legged robots highly flexible.
Fall avoidance and recovery for bipedal robots
For humanoid robots to replace humans in dangerous environments, they require a robust fall prevention system that can detect falls, prevent major damage and recover back up to continue on with the task.
Terrain classification using legged robots
The effectiveness of a legged robot’s gait is highly dependent on the ground cover of the terrain the robot is traversing. It is therefore advantageous for a legged robot to adapt its behaviour to suit the environment.
Weaver: Hexapod robot with 5DoF limbs for navigating on unstructured terrain
We introduce a novel hexapod robot, Weaver, which has five joints per leg and 30 degrees of freedom overall.
Magnapods: Highly Flexible Inspection Robots
Magnapods are a class of bespoke high degrees-of-freedom autonomous inspection robots that are capable of navigating complex ferrous environments. Their flexibility […]
