4-Legged Robot Learns How to Walk, and it’s Clumsy as a Newborn Deer

University of Oslo Watching machine learning take place in real time can be a pretty astonishing experience. Like seeing a kid growing up, only compressed into a shorter time frame, you get to witness early failed attempts gradually give way to competency and, eventually, a high level of skill. That is thanks to the way…

Scientists invent new, faster gait for six-legged robots

Feb. 17 (UPI)– Robotics engineers frequently find their inspiration from nature. For six-legged robots, a nature-inspired gait proved an obstacle to maximum speed.Researchers at the University of Lausanne and Swiss Federal Institute of Innovation, UNIL and EPFL, wished to discover if there was a much faster method for their insect-inspired robot to scurry.Most pests stroll…
