Welcome to the Dynamic Legged Systems Lab
The Dynamic Legged Systems (DLS) lab is performing research and development for the design and control of high-performance, versatile legged robots, including planning and perception. The torque-controlled hydraulic quadruped robot HyQReal is our flagship platform... Read more
The Robot Teleoperativo is a new robotics result achieved at IIT, in collaboration with INAIL (Italian National Worker’s Compensation Authority). It combines the rugged locomotion of the HyQReal robot with dexterous and powerful manipulation assured by a new robotic arm, controlled by immersive VR visualization and haptic teleoperation.
It represents a significant contribution to the state-of-the-art robotics dedicated to intervention on unstructured, difficult terrain environments, requiring powerful capabilities. The human operator can always be in control, not being replaced by the robot but substituted and assisted by it, in the case of situations where humans may be exposed to risks for their health, such as disaster response or emergency in nuclear, marine, chemical, oil-&-gas, environments.
