Ascento - the jumping robot

We introduce a novel type of mobile robot combining both legs and wheels to maneuver agile and overcome obstacles.
The chosen approach is a two-wheeled inverted pendulum like robot that is capable of jumping. It combines light weight, a compact form factor and robust structural design through use of topology optimization. Stabilization and driving is achieved by a Linear Quadratic Regulator-scheme while jumping is controlled via a sequential semi-feed-forward control. With a maximum jump height of 0.35m and 0.1m of space to re-stabilize when landing.

We are Bachelor students in Mechanical Engineering at the ETH Zürich and developed the robot during the last 10 months. For more information please contact us directly.
