WALK-MAN

Category: Robotics > Other > Leg-based System
Reference # : Model No :

WALK-MAN is a 4-year integrated project funded by the European Commission through the call FP7-ICT-2013-10. The project started in September 2013 with the goal to develop a robotic platform with an anthropomorphic form which can operate outside the laboratory space in unstructured environments and work spaces as a result of natural and man-made disasters. The intended robot skills include:

Dexterity - powerful manipulation skills (e.g., turning a heavy valve or lifting collapsed masonry).
Robust balanced locomotion - walking/crawling over uneven terrain surfaces.
Physical sturdiness - operating/manipulating conventional hand tools such as pneumatic drills or cutters.

Furthermore the robot will have sufficient perception/cognitive ability to permit it to operate autonomously or under reduced tele-operation in case of severe communication limitations or remote control due to limited channel bandwidth and/or reliability. Another goal is for the robot to demonstrate human levels of locomotion, balance and manipulation and be validated in realistic challenge tasks outside the laboratory environment.
