RoboKit-MV: an Educational Initiative

  title={RoboKit-MV: an Educational Initiative},
  author={Azer Babaev and Ilya Osokin and Ilya Ryakin and Egor Davydenko and Vladimir Litvinenko and Ivan Khokhlov and Aleksandr Matsun and Vitaly Suvorov},
In this paper, we present a robot model and code base for affordable education in the field of humanoid robotics. We give an overview of the software and hardware of a robot that won several competitions with the team RoboKit in 2019−2021, provide analysis of the contemporary market of education in robotics, and highlight the reasoning beyond certain design solutions.

Advances in real‐world applications for legged robots

Insight is provided into the application of the quadrupedal robot ANYmal in outdoor missions of industrial inspection and search and rescue and the general learnings from the ARGOS and ERL challenges.

An Open Torque-Controlled Modular Robot Architecture for Legged Locomotion Research

A novel controller which combines feedforward contact forces computed from a kino-dynamic optimizer with impedance control of the center of mass and base orientation is presented, which can regulate complex motions while being robust to environmental uncertainty.

Proprioceptive Actuator Design in the MIT Cheetah: Impact Mitigation and High-Bandwidth Physical Interaction for Dynamic Legged Robots

A new metric named the “impact mitigation factor” (IMF) is introduced to quantify backdrivability at impact, which enables design comparison across a wide class of robots.
