AUTONOMOUS NON-WHEELED ALL-TERRAIN ROVER

AUTONOMOUS NON-WHEELED ALL-TERRAIN ROVER

  • Duration:

The objective of the activity is to develop the ANT navigation system for legged robots. It will be able to perceive the terrain, to plan a path to a desired goal and to control the path execution while traversing unconsolidated, inclined, and rugged terrain. A modular generic approach is being developed to exploit the potential of robots with four (quadrupeds) as well as with six legs (hexapods).
