Engineers at Oregon State University have developed a bi-pedal robot, named Cassie, designed to eventually “revolutionize” package delivery.
“Quite simply, robots with legs can go a lot of places that wheels cannot," said Dr. Johnathan Hurst, associate professor of robotics in the OSU College of Engineering and chief technology officer at Agility Robotics, a company born from the robotics research at OSU. “Cassie the robot can stand, steer, and take a pretty good fall without breaking. It’s half the weight and much more capable than earlier robots developed at OSU.”
Cassie was built with $1 million grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the US Department of Defense, according to a press release from the university.
