Home robots are closer than what we may think. The video below is collaborative research under the UT Austin Villa team for qualifying for RoboCup@Home 2019. More to come soon!
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…
Congratulations to phd student Gray for his new paper!
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: D. Kim, J. Lee, O. Campbell, H. Hwang, L.
