LIMES - Learning Intelligent Motions for Kinematically Complex Robots for Exploration in Space

  • Duration:

In the LIMES project, a highly mobile multi-legged walking robot with the ability to straighten up the upper body in order to use the front extremities as manipulation devices will be developed. In future extraterrestrial missions, such a system will allow taking soil samples from difficult-to-access regions or assembling and maintaining infrastructure on rough and unstructured surfaces of celestial bodies. Beside the mechatronic development of the robot, the project focuses on generating and optimizing different locomotion behaviors for traversing varying surface structures and subsoils with the aid of a simulation environment and machine learning methods.
