In late 2019, ORI acquired a second legged robot to join ANYmal, the primary platform for DRS over the last few years. Vision 60 is a rugged quadruped robot developed by Ghost Robotics, a spin-off of the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) based in Philadelphia. The robot is built for challenging environments, for example, industrial applications. DRS are planning to use it to test new control and motion planning algorithms.
The Vision 60 comes with a full proprioceptive sensory system (torque sensors, joint encoders and IMU), a Zed stereo camera and 3 time-of-flight depth sensors (2 in the front and 1 in the back) for exteroceptive sensing. Last but not least it is built around a metal chassis that makes it robust to falls and collisions and a more compact trunk with an extended leg workspace that even allows it to walk belly-up or to self-right after falling!
