The Parietal Systems, Inc. (PSI) SCOPE Team developed a robotic platform for PSI to demonstrate their advanced sensor processing algorithms. The team built an autonomous walking robot that mimics the motion of a scorpion. This eight-legged robot has three walking gaits: one to move forward and backwards, one to sidestep, and one to rotate. The robot contains a variety of sensors to avoid objects and autonomously navigate toward a target. The sensor data, including a video feed, can also be transmitted wirelessly to a workstation for further processing and control.
