Minitaur is a medium-sized legged robot platform. Its high-torque brushless outrunner motors and specialized leg design let this machine run and jump over difficult terrain. High-speed and high-resolution encoders let the machine see the ground through the motors and adapt faster than the blink of an eye.
Minitaur is capable of running and turning at high speeds (2 m/s and 1 rad/s respectively) and can jump over small obstacles (up to 0.48m). The robot can even climb stairs, chain-link fences, and open doors (behaviors still under development). The battery lasts 6.75 hours when the robot is standing and 20 minutes when the robot is running at full speed.
