The subTerranean Haptic INvestiGator Project is an EU H2020 funded project which brings together lead researchers to focus on haptic navigation for walking robots. The project will focus on developing new terrain sensing, estimation and control technology for the Anymal quadruped. In addition to ORI, partners will include ETH Zurich, Poznan University of Technology, Universities of Edinburgh [...]
The MEMMO (Memory of Motion) Project is an EU H2020 funded project which brings together EU leaders in the field of motion planning and control of dynamic robots. In addition to ORI, partners will include LAAS/CNRS, IDIAP, University of Edinburgh, Max Planck Institute as well as industrial partners such as PAL Robotics, Wandercraft and Airbus. [...]
ORI is starting a major new research direction into legged robots. Drs. Ioannis Havoutis and Maurice Fallon have recently joined as academic staff with research expertise in control, planning and state estimation on dynamic walking robots such as the IIT Hydraulic Quadruped and the Boston Dynamics Atlas. Below are upcoming papers in this research [...]
