Testing ANYmal at RACE

On Tuesday the 26th of November, Oxford Robotics Institute visited RACE to test out their ANYmal at the mobility benchmarking lanes. This is part of our RAIN collaboration to test the reliability of different mobile robots. The terrain course, consisting of three ‘lanes’, was first developed by NIST, the U.S's National Institute of Standards [...]

VILENS

VILENS - Visual-Inertial Odometry for Legged Robots VILENS (Visual Inertial Legged Navigation System) is a factor-graph based odometry algorithm for legged robots that fuses leg odometry, vision, and IMU data. This algorithm was designed by David Wisth, Marco Camurri, and Maurice Fallon at the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI). The papers describing this work are listed below. [...]

ORCA Hub Demo – Blyth 2019

In a cold, wet week at the beginning of October, a team from Oxford Robotics Institute headed north to Blyth, near Newcastle, for the ORCA Hub demonstrations. A large warehouse, normally used for testing off-shore wind turbines, hosted teams from a number of different universities, all keen to demonstrate their advances in research in [...]

Actively Mapping Industrial Structures with Information Gain-Based Planning on a Quadruped Robot

Actively Mapping Industrial Structures with Information Gain-Based Planning on a Quadruped Robot Yiduo Wang, Milad Ramezani and Maurice Fallon IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation Abstract In this paper, we develop an online active mapping system to enable a quadruped robot to autonomously survey large physical structures. We describe the perception, planning and control [...]
