Our bipedal robot, ATRIAS, was featured on CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." Stephen suggests our brutal balance-testing procedures are really just a way to cope with our own tormented pasts.
The Science Channel program "Outrageous Acts of Science" took interest in one of our ATRIAS robot videos on YouTube and paid us a visit. They document our robot field test at OSU's Reser Stadium, where we push ATRIAS' top speed.
The DURUS robot, unlike typical humanoids, is featured walking with a human-like "heel-to-toe" walking style. This result marks the power of its algorithms to control more dynamic motions in the future, such as running and jumping.
Discovery Channel Canada featured our collaborator, Monica Daley of the Royal Veterinary College, on their popular science news show, Daily Planet. She explains how ground-running birds, like guinea fowl, can teach us a lot about amazingly stable running.
KGW News Portland reports on our bipedal robot, ATRIAS. This unconventional legged robot has a design and controller inspired by the motion of running birds.
If you tuned in to Headline News (HLN) in March 2015, you might have seen this 15-second clip during commercial breaks. There must be something very relatable about being pelted with dodgeballs.
A short documentary-style film chronicling the ATRIAS bipedal robot, culminating in our exhibition show at the DARPA Robotics Challenge in 2015.
