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…
