Reliable Segmentation and Matching in Urban and Natural Environments

In this work we introduce Natural Segmentation and Matching (NSM), an algorithm for reliable localization, using laser, in both urban and natural environments. Current state-of-the-art global approaches do not generalize well to structure-poor vegetated areas such as forests or orchards where clutter and perceptual aliasing prevents reliable extraction of repeatable and distinctive landmarks to be [...]

Look just what walked in: ANYmal delivered to ORI

Recently we welcomed a new robot to the ORI mobile robot menagerie: ANYmal. Built by ANYbotics AG, ANYmal is a 35kg torque-controlled quadruped specifically designed to be rugged and to be used in the field for industrial inspections as well as the basic science of motion planning, control and navigation. Researchers and students from [...]

Legged Robots at ORI

  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 [...]
