Helping robots learn to walk


Michael Brunig shows the Syrobot designed by Australia's CSIRO research institute. The cool thing about Syrobot is its embedded software that teaches robots how to walk.

The CSIRO code, which runs on the Robot Operating Systems developed by Willow Garage, lets engineers use a PC to let a new robot educate itself about balance and motion. Once it finds the optimal patterns they can be downloaded to the robot's usually lower-performance, lower-cost control electronics.

The approach lets robot makers quickly prototype the systems they need with different sizes and shapes of legs for different environments without worrying about reinventing the wheel of getting them walking.
