He should not only be able to walk and run, but also climb stairs, crawl, climb and even jump - with Anymal, scientists from the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems at ETH Zurich have developed a four-legged walking robot that mimics the movement of an animal. Equipped with sensors, it should also be able to be used as an inspection or operating robot in difficult terrain.

Joints that gently cushion the cracks

Anybotics, a spin-off from ETH Zurich, celebrates the premiere of Anymal at the 2017 Hanover Fair. The trotting walking robot is strongly reminiscent of a dog. It has joints with which it can not only walk or run, but also jump and softly cushion these jumps. "We want a robot that overcomes obstacles, moves quickly and is at the same time energy-efficient and robust," emphasizes Marco Hutter, professor at the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems at ETH Zurich. Equipped with an international scholarship, he had set about developing Anymal. With Anybotics, he is now paving the way for industrial marketing.

Lightweight with sensors

The robot has a total weight of only 30 kg and should be able to move even in rough terrain and in an inhospitable climate. A whole range of sensors help Anymal to continuously measure its surroundings and so plan and implement its use as an inspection or operating robot as autonomously as possible.

Visitors to the Hannover Messe 2017 can get to know the robot on four legs at the leading trade fair for research and development, Research & Technology. It will be presented from April 24 to 28, 2017 in Hall 2, Stand C39.
