Short description: This case study demonstrates how the fault tolerance of robots can be achieved by using of self-reconfiguration. A biologically inspired – SIRR approach was used in combination with the patented robot leg amputation mechanism R-LEGAM.
Useful for: Fault tolerant (walking, wheeled and hybrid) self reconfigurable robots for: search and rescue missions, non-military applications, police and military operations and for space exploration missions.
Short description: This newly introduced self-synchronization approach for walking robots demonstrates how synchronization can be dynamically re-gained during the robot’s walking. This is especially important for situations like robot walking gait adaptation on different terrains, by obstacles collisions (with legs), after robot self-reconfiguration, etc.
Useful for: Adaptive gait generation for walking robots (on different terrains, robot self-reconfigurations, etc.). To be considered for applications in non-military, space or military domains.
Short description: This hybrid robot can perform in-situ reconfiguration of its posture, which increases the robustness and reliability of the robotic system. If the robot tips over while performing its tasks due to uneven terrain or other environmental conditions, the design enables the robot to reconfigure and continue with its mission. The robot has bio-inspired learning integrated for detection of its posture.
Useful for: Search and rescue missions, reconnaissance, other non-military, military and space applications.
Short description: The innovative SelSta approach is used to discover on-line and in short time the best stable and energy efficient humanoid robot walking gait on different kind of flat surfaces (floors, carpets) by using of biologically inspired approach – symbiosis.
Useful for: Different kinds of humanoid robots that have to quickly & online find the optimally stable and energy efficient walking parameters for a given flat surface.
Short description: This video demonstrates a self-adapting emergent gait generation concept for multi-legged robots with dynamically distributed pressure on the robot’s feet during its walking.
Useful for: Multi-legged robots walking over uneven or flat terrains. To be considered for applications in non-military, military or space domains.
