Technology Factsheet

MIT DRC

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

MIT DRC is a robot built by MIT for the Darpa Robotics Challenge. The MIT DRC robot can balance its body in a wide variety of postures and can remain balanced with significant unmodeled disturbances. The robot has a state estimation tool which combines information from the robot’s joint position sensors, its onboard accelerometer and gyroscopes, and its laser rangefinder to determine the robot’s state with little or no drift. This enables accurate, repeatable foot placement, and even allows the robot to accurately track its state without any contact with the ground. Additional information on the MIT DRC robot.

Benefits

A quadratic program (QP) controller allows the robot to walk quickly and precisely on a variety of terrains.
