Dante II: Technical Description, Results, and Lessons Learned

  title={Dante II: Technical Description, Results, and Lessons Learned},
  author={John Bares and David Wettergreen},
  journal={I. J. Robotics Res.},
Dante II is a unique walking robot that provides important insight into high-mobility robotic locomotion and remote robotic exploration. Dante II’s uniqueness stems from its combined legged and rappelling mobility system, its scanning-laser rangefinder, and its multilevel control scheme. In 1994 Dante II was deployed and successfully tested in a remote Alaskan volcano, as a demonstration of the fieldworthiness of these technologies. For more than five days the robot explored alone in the… CONTINUE READING
