Two-legged robot walking over obstacles without looking




Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a bipedal robot on a human scale: ATRIAS. The robot is used for the testing of theoretical concepts. Now it turns out that the robot can walk over obstacles.

The robot was designed to function as a simple mass-spring system, a model similar to a pogo stick. This two-legged spring model can walk and run, as seen in many more films that appear irregularly. In the video below runs the robot over a fifteen centimeters high barrier around without “tripping”. In addition, the obstacle is not detected by a camera or other external sensor.

At present ATRIAS along with many other robots on the way to the DARPA Robotics Challenge -finale held on 5 and 6 June in California.
