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

TERRINet OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
