How Does It Work?
Each robot is equipped with hydraulics in its limbs, which are key for maintaining balance. At the bottom of each foot, the robots also have force sensors. This is necessary for allowing the robot to calculate how much force is needed to push off for each step and also how much the leg needs to give when it steps down. Actuators are also located on the joints to help with movement. All of these robots possess stereo vision, which can be compared to our vision as humans. It allows the robots to process three dimensional objects in three dimensional space. All of its functions are controlled by the computer which is installed onboard. Depending on the robot, some may have different types of sensors in order to find their way to a desired location, such as infrared or none if it is not necessary.
