We have developed a visually controlled bipedal running robot named ACHIRES: Actively Coordinated High-speed Image-processing Running Experiment System. This robot has a leg length of 14cm and 6 degrees of freedom, and can run in the sagittal plane at 4.2 km/h . Its key technologies are high-speed vision for recognizing the posture of the robot at 600 fps, and high-speed actuation for realizing high speed motion. The combination of these technologies plays an important role in the robot’s ability to run stably at high speeds.

The Ishikawa Oku Laboratory, at the University of Tokyo, has been at the forefront of developing high-speed vision systems to enable robotic movement that pushes the limits of mechanical systems and is too fast for humans to follow in detail. This video provides a summary of what they have accomplished.
