ANYmal Quadruped Robot Climbing Stairs

Researchers at the Robotics Systems Lab at ETH Zürich, who are working on legged robots, tested perception-based motion planning for the ANYmal quadruped robot to navigate terrain and stairs. This video was recorded a few years ago, but it's intriguing to see how what we consider normal now was 20x speed then.  ANYmal quadruped robot climbing stairs.
