Boldly going where sometimes we can't
Mobile robots can enter dangerous situations so humans can stay at a safe distance. They can go places that are too remote (like Mars) or difficult for people to reach (like factory pipelines). You might not expect it, but some of the most challenging places for a robot to go are the unstructured environments where we live, work and play every day.
Explore the varieties of ways that robots can move and how they can offer humans access to places we can’t venture ourselves. Test ROBOTIS-MINI’s ability to put one foot in front of the other and control its balance. Control THES, a snake-like ‘bot which can crawl through pipes and alert humans to leaks or system damages.
