Jeffrey the Quadruped

Jeffrey is a really small quadruped robot, which is actually a pre-research for our next hexapod project. It is built in 1 night (hell yeah \m/).

This is an old video of it, you can observe that Jeffrey is actively avoiding items with a “fearing” motion.

This is a newer video. You can see that the walking and rotation patterns are upgraded and the robot is much more balanced. And in an addition to its obstacle detection, now it is able to detect edges of the surface he is on, in order to avoid falling down.
