    Ascento - the jumping robot

    May 31, 2018

    Project Ascento has been run by a team of 9 Bachelor students at ETH Zurich. Over the course of 9 months, we have conceived, designed and manufactured a robot that is capable of climbing stairs by jumping up steps. Also very quick on his wheels, the robot shows unprecedented indoor manoeuvrability and mobility.

    Ascento: a two-wheeled jumping robot (ICRA 2019)

    Feb 20, 2019

    This video accompanies "Ascento: A Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot" presented at the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), Montreal, Canada.

    Abstract — Applications of mobile ground robots demand high speed and agility while navigating in complex indoor environments. These present an ongoing challenge in mobile robotics. A system with these specifications would be of great use for a wide range of indoor inspection tasks. This paper introduces Ascento, a compact wheeled bipedal robot that is able to move quickly on flat terrain, and to overcome obstacles by jumping. The mechanical design and overall architecture of the system is presented, as well as the development of various controllers for different scenarios. A series of experiments with the final prototype system validate these behaviors in realistic scenarios.
