An Investigation Project On The Pupper Robot
The purpose of this project is to provide insights on the Pupper Robot for future studies and research.
- 1. Build the robot and analyze the dynamical behaviors of the robot.
- 2. Investigate the robot control from both hardware and software perspectives.
- 3. Design a new gait for the Pupper Robot.
- 4. Create an implementation guide for future groups, documenting knowledge we have learned during the project.
- A. Built a fully functioning robot.
- B. Investigated the theoretical underpinnings of quadruped robots, including inverse kinematics and gait generation theories.
- C. Understood and reflected on the control structure of the robot.
- D. Implemented a new jumping gait which allows the robot to leap forward and land on balance.
- E. Composed detailed guides on robot building instructions, controller files installation, simulator installation, and simulator modifications.
