RiSE platform

The RiSE robot is a bio-inspired hexapod designed to climb on a variety of vertical surfaces as well as to demonstrate horizontal mobility. With a total of twelve actuated degrees of freedom, two joints per leg, the robot is severely underactuated and must rely upon tuned compliances, built into its leg and foot structures, to be able to properly hold onto climbing surfaces. RiSE is computationally and power autonomous, running real-time control software on a 266 MHz processor, with extended run-times allowed by its on-board batteries.
