ROB / Assistance Robot Race



About the Team

The team is composed of the Robotic Systems Lab (RSL), a robotics lab at ETH Zurich, and our pilot, Sammy Kunz.

The Robotic Systems Lab investigates the development of machines and their intelligence to operate in complex and challenging environments. With a large focus on robots with arms and legs, our research includes novel actuation methods for advanced dynamic interaction, innovative designs for increased system mobility and versatility, and new control and optimization algorithms for locomotion and manipulation. We see the Cybathlon challenge as a great opportunity to put the technology we have been developing at the service of society.

About the Device

Our platform ALMA is built on the ANYmal robot from ANYbotics. We adapt it by mounting a house-built arm on top along with a set of sensors. While the device is a generic mobile manipulation platform, it serves very well the purpose of assisting people with needs in different aspects of their everyday life.
