A new robot was shown in China
The robot can accurately estimate the landing state of its foot during highly dynamic movements such as jumping and forward somersaults.
The Robotics X Lab of the Chinese technology corporation Tencent has introduced a new Max robot. It is reported Pandaly.
The device has learning capabilities and can learn new movements within hours. It is equipped with unique navigation and is able to determine terrain conditions in real time, as well as create maps of the earth’s surface.
“To better address the problem of robot control accuracy caused by highly dynamic actions such as jumps and somersaults, the Robotics X team developed a predictive control algorithm that combines optimal jump trajectory planning and real-time balanced motion trajectory planning,” Tencent said.
Robotics X also added joint torque feedback-based landing detection capabilities for Max. Thus, the robot can accurately assess the landing state of its foot during highly dynamic movements such as jumping and forward flips.
