humanoid pelvis!!
« on: February 13, 2007, 10:14:45 AM »
so these guys one-up Asimo to show that adding a pelvis to your humanoid robot can greatly enhance walking ability . . .



in the second half of the video, they give another demonstration of the walking (wheel?) chair

if you look carefully, you will notice its tethered . . .

previous information on it was originally posted here:

No, I think they were saying each leg has 7 degrees of freedom.

Of course, that's not saying much. Each leg in MicroRaptor has seven degrees of freedom also...
