The Legged Robotics Team at ETH Zurich’s Autonomous Systems Lab is doing research to build fast, versatile, and efficient quadrupedal robots. This movie illustrates some of the work that was done in the past years. Inspired by nature, the team built different types of electrically driven robots that can do various maneuvers from slow and careful climbing to very robust dynamic trotting.

 

For more information on legged robots, including the Legged Robotics Team’s robots StarlETH, ALoF, and ScarlETH, more information on the use of series elastic actuators for walking robots as well as many more movies, check out the Legged Robotics Team website.

 

This is the first in a series of Robotics Microlectures produced in cooperation with Switzerland’s NCCR Robotics and Robohub. Watch this space for more!
