Robotic ape uses complex feet to move on all fours
To keep the arms and legs in sync and properly touching the ground, the DFKI outfitted each foot and hand with a variety of sensors. Force sensors allow the robot to detect how it’s aligned and moving, and proximity sensors allow it to properly step and make sure that it doesn’t run into anything. Temperature and acceleration sensors are built into the robot elsewhere.
