Autonomous Robots

TU Delft researcher Daan Hobbelen has created “Flame”, an autonomous robot that uses “seven motors and a balance ‘organ’ loaded with stability algorithms” to mimic the walking motion of its human counterpart. Video after the break.

According to Hobbelen, Flame is the most advanced walking robot in the world, at least in the category of robots which apply the human method of walking as a starting principle. Modeling the walking process allows researchers to construct two-legged robots which walk more naturally.
