In the past few months, we have covered plenty of videos that show how the ANYmal C Robot can take on challenging exploration tasks. This video shows it autonomously exploring inside the Hagerbach underground mine.
As the researchers explain:
The onboard path planner is unified across legged and flying robots and enables navigation in environments with steep slopes, and diverse geometries. When a communication link is available, each robot of the team shares submaps to a centralized location where a multi-robot coordination framework identifies global frontiers of the exploration space to best inform each system where it should re-position to best continue its mission.
