We are happy to share a preliminary video of our new track of work on transparency controller synthesis for augmentation exoskeletons performed by PhD students Binghan He and Gray Thomas. The hardware platform is designed by Apptronik.
Our PhD student Minkyu and undergraduate visitor Miguel shared their latest research in this fun video!
We’re delighted to see our research broadly shared across UT media channels! Thank you and Hook’em!
This video shows our human-size bipedal robot, Mercury, which has passive ankles, thus relying solely on hip and knee actuation for balance. This capability is not only very difficult to accomplish but enables the robot to rapidly respond to disturbances like those produced when walking around humans.
Congratulations to postdoc Donghyun, graduate students Junhyeok, Orion, and our former phd student Nick for their great work!
PI Luis Sentis poses with Apptronik’s DRACO humanoid robot and SAGIT exoskeleton.
Congratulations to Donghyun, Junhyeok, Jaemin, Orion, and Hochul for their accepted papers:
Video for the first paper is below:
Here is the pointer to the slides:
Our students Minkyu, Nico and Arnau, will be competing at RoboCup@Home Domestic Standard Platform in Montreal this week along a larger team. Wishing the whole Austin Villa team best luck!
Here ares some snippets of a panel that PI, Dr. Sentis, moderated at SXSW 2018.
This paper starts with the speculative fragment: Is it okay for robots to stop objects or other robots that could collide with people?
