New Videos from Modular Robotics lab at USD

Mirko Bordignon, Andreas Lyder and Ricardo Franco Mendoza García from Modular Robotics Research Lab at USD have published two new videos of the Odin system. It is a proof-of-concept experiment from this paper.

They illustrate several important things. Especially the random motion in the first one below is interesting, as it shows how the flexible joints can absorb small imperfections in motion and control.

In the second one, it is interesting to see how it can allow one actuator, a master,  to control others as slaves.

The first, Random motion.

The Second (actually newer), where one actuator operates as master and controls others as slaves.

This is really interesting stuff, I can only say, watch this space!
