HyQ2Max Teaser Video (2015)

IEEE Spectrum published the DLS lab's HyQ2Max teaser video! More to come shortly... This is the video from this article, the full article is available here.

 

HyQ on the ICRA'15 trailer

The 2015 IEEE Interantional Conference on Robotics and Automation trailer is out and prominently features the recent planning and perception work on HyQ. The clips are from the paper below, while both the teaser and the full trailer follow.

HyQ overview (2014)

IEEE Spectrum published an article on the DLS lab showing off the newest capabilies of HyQ. This is the video from this article, full article is available here.

 

Step reflex (2013)

A new step reflex gives the HyQ quadruped robot the ability to avoid stumbling by pulling up legs that hit obstacles while trotting (in a similar fashion to what animals do).
During the leg's swing phase external forces on the foot are measured and observed. If a force acting against the motion of the foot is registered, a reflex can be triggered. Once the reflex is triggered the powerful hydraulic joints pull up the foot in less than 150ms.

 

Balancing (2012)

HyQ is a new versatile quadruped robot with hydraulic+electric actuation developed at the Department of Advanced Robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). HyQ is fast, robust, actively compliant and ready for versatile locomotion. It weighs 70kg and is 1m long.This video shows balancing and outdoor tests with HyQ at IIT. It shows walking over unperceived obstacles using active compliance and IMU for stabilization.

 

Force control (2012)

Force control applied to one of the legs of the hydraulically actuated quadruped robot HyQ,at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT).

 

Leg assembly (2011)

This video shows the assembly of one of the legs of the quadruped robot HyQ. The design of the robot was part of Claudio Semini's dissertation at the Advanced Robotics Department of the Italian Institute of Technology.

 

HyQ (2011)

HyQ - first steps (2011)HyQ is a new versatile quadruped robot with hydraulic+electric actuation developed at the Department of Advanced Robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). HyQ is fast, robust, actively compliant and ready for versatile locomotion. It weighs 70kg and is 1m long.This video shows a summary of HyQ's abilities of performing both highly dynamic motions and precise movements. The torque-controlled joints allow active compliance, inverse dynamics control, etc.

 

Hopping leg protoype (2008)

The Hydraulic Quadruped robot HyQ (pronounced [hai-kju:]) is currently being developed at the Italian Institute of Technology. It is powered by a hydraulic actuation system. The first leg prototype has a hip and a knee joint and weighs around 4.5 kg.In this video, the first HyQ Leg prototype is attached to a vertical slider set-up and performs vertical hopping with different frequencies.
