Cassie Blue: A Bipedal Walking Robot

Dynamic Legged Locomotion Lab at the University of Michigan developed Cassie Blue, which is a bipedal robot with 20 degrees of freedom (dofs) that can navigate around and avoid obstacles. Photo credit: Dynamic Legged Locomotion Lab You can learn more about the concept of degrees of freedom (dofs) for robots in the article below: https://www.mecharithm.com/degrees-of-freedom-of-a-robot/ By combining the data from the LIDAR and IMU sensors in real-time, the bipedal walking robot is able to create an elevation map. The bipedal robot planning system uses a multi-layer local map to find the optimal path and a reactive system to compensate for…
