PAL Robotics Pyrène

Two human size humanoid robots in a fully equipped experimental room. LAAS has a long time experience in humanoid robot motion planning and control. After having demonstrated whole-body motion generation capabilities on HRP-2, LAAS is now developing new algorithms to enable physical interaction of humanoid robots with their environment and with humans. The new robot robot Pyrène constructed by Pal Robotics based on the experience of LAAS is powerful and designed to be torque controlled.

Key features:
  • Advanced motion-planning and motion-generation software
  • harmonic drive reducers
  • Large experimental room reproducing parts of the environment of an industrial site. The experimental areal is fully covered by MOCAP
Possible applications:
  • Physical interaction
  • Factory of the future
  • Humanoid robotics and biomechanics
  • Motion planning
  • Whole-body motion generation
