DARPA SubT Challenge

CERBERUS (CollaborativE walking & flying RoBots for autonomous ExploRation in Underground Settings) aims to respond to the needs and goals set by the DARPA Subterranean (SubT) Challenge. The SubT Challenge plans to develop novel approaches to rapidly map, explore and search underground environments in time-sensitive operations critical for the civilian and military domains alike. CERBERUS is a product of the collaboration between University of Nevada, Reno, ETH Zurich, Sierra Nevada Corporation, University of California, Berkeley, and Flyability.

ARGOS Challenge (JFR2018.pdf) (FSR2017.pdf)

Watch some of the highlights of ANYmal at the ARGOS Challenge (http://www.argos-challenge.com/en). ANYmal is a fully autonomous quadrupedal robot, capable of traversing on various terrain including steps, obstacles, stairs etc. Ruggedized and water-proof, ANYmal is well suited for applications in harsh environments such as offshore oil and gas platforms.
