Teaching Bipedal Robots to Step Across Discrete Terrain

UC Berkeley and CMU researchers demonstrate dynamic walking on stepping stones

Like humans and most terrestrial animals, legged robots need the ability to move over rugged terrain to be useful in applications such as disaster response and search and rescue. However, designing control algorithms that can handle discrete footholds (like rubble or stepping stones) is challenging, because there are strict constraints on foot placement that can’…
