ARAMIES: Climbing skills

  • Published on May 21, 2008
  • The ARAMIES robot comprises 26 active joints, 6 in each leg and 2 for actuating the head, which includes a camera, a laser scanner and two ultrasound distance sensors. In addition, the system has acceleration sensors and gyroscopes for stability control. Furthermore, each joint is equipped with absolute position sensors, current sensors, and temperature sensors.
    One major advantage of the ARAMIES robot in comparison to other walking robots is its actuated claw which is used to get hold in steep inclinations. In laboratory tests the system was able to climb up a rung wall with a inclination of 70°.

    Dude, a robot one tenth the size of that is not going to carry 50 calibre guns :P It'd be squashed.
    (ok, ok, I know you meant 10x size but I couldn't resist)

    Think about triple speed tenth size and using some 50 cal guns or patriots on its back! Lots of armor on the front and you have the one and only killing machine!
