Meet ALPHRED2: a multi-modal locomotion robot that can walk, hop, run, and roll. It is powered by RoMeLa’s BEAR (Back-drivable Electromechanical Actuator for Robots) actuators which are force controlled. The robot can use its limbs to pick up objects or push buttons. It can walk stably on rough terrain at speed up to 1.5m/s.
The above video from Dennis Hong shows how this robot can change shape to complete tasks.
