Quadruped Robot Dog Gives a High Five

The researchers have developed a nonlinear Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework for multi-legged robots that can generate whole-body motion plans in real-time. The quadruped dog robot can maneuver through different terrains using a novel model predictive control algorithm. Image credit: The Authors In this study, the proposed control system is implemented on Solo12, a quadruped robot that is able to perform several motions such as trotting, bounding, and jumping. The robot dog is able to generate a very complex motion, such as a high-five, with the help of its full-body capabilities. The quadruped robot gives a high-five that resembles a…

This Quadruped Dog Robot Can Carry a Large Load

The Jueying X20 is a quadruped robot developed by Deep Robotics, and Mecharithm previously covered the news about it HERE. We learned that this quadruped was designed based on real-world feedback from users and the applications they required. Image credit: Deep Robotics It was previously reported that the robot could withstand a load of 75 kg (165 lbs), but new tests have shown that the robot can carry loads exceeding 85 kg (187 lbs). Image credit: Deep Robotics With powerful motion control, this robot dog can adapt itself to different terrain, climb steps, and handle slopes. Image credit: Deep Robotics…
