Aaron Johnson’s Robomechanics Lab has developed an open-source software that enables more agile movement in legged robots.

Open-source software gives a leg up to robot research

The robotic explorer GLIMPSE, created at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, has made it into the final round of a competition for prospecting resources in space. The long-​term goal is for the robot to explore the south polar region of the moon.

Robot dog on the way to the moon

A praying mantis for the moon, Mars and meteorites: the mantis-like robot "Mantis" is said to be able to independently explore planets and build an infrastructure with its claws.

The Praying Mantis As A Model - Six-Legged Robot To Build Infrastructure On Celestial Bodies

Benjamin Katz '16, SM '18 is applying the skills he gained working on MIT's mini cheetah robot to the ATLAS project at Boston Dynamics.

From "cheetah-noids" to humanoids

A new control system, demonstrated using MIT’s robotic mini cheetah, enables four-legged robots to jump across uneven terrain in real-time.

One giant leap for the mini cheetah

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of California, Berkeley, and Facebook AI didn’t just teach a robot to walk — they taught it how to learn to walk.

AI Allows Legged Robots To Adapt in Real-Time to Changing Conditions

Contribute to the development of a four-legged walking rover that is set to fly to the Moon with NASA in 2021 and 2022.

The Spacebit Engineering Challenge

A new open-source torque-controlled legged robot system, with a low-cost and low-complexity actuator module at its core. It consists of a high-torque brushless DC motor and a low-gear-ratio transmission suitable for impedance and force control.

An Open Torque-Controlled Modular Robot Architecture for Legged Locomotion Research

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a privately endowed university in Cambridge Massachusetts, and has developed a new powerful, robust, inexpensive 9 kg (20 pounds) quadruped robot called the Mini Cheetah.

Mobile system could reduce health care workers’ exposure to Covid-19 virus.

Robot takes contact-free measurements of patients' vital signs

Humans have the ability to seamlessly adapt to changes in their environments: adults can learn to walk on crutches in just a few seconds, people can adapt almost instantaneously to picking up an object that is unexpectedly heavy, and children who can walk on flat ground can quickly adapt their gait

Robots that Learn to Adapt

Researchers are applying soft magnetic materials to motors, making them smaller, lighter, and more efficient. These small motors stand to have a have big impact on robotics.

Revolutionizing robotics with motors

A new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. These “micro-bristle-bots” might work together to sense environmental changes, move materials – or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body.

Tiny vibration powered robots are the size of the worlds smallest ant

Using the fossil and fossilized footprints of a 300-million-year-old animal, an interdisciplinary team has developed a method for identifying the most likely gaits of extinct animals and designed a robot that can recreate their walk.
