The Salto-1P Robot Moves via Precise Hopping #Robotics #Robot
Salto-1P is a small monopedal jumping robot capable of continuous high-power hopping.
The video above demonstrates a new control algorithm that can land Salto-1P’s foot at particular spots on the ground like jumping on stepping stones or playing one-leg hopscotch. They call this “deadbeat foot placement hopping control”.
Precise foot placement enables Salto-1P to jump on surfaces like furniture. This work will be presented at the 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
