Virginia Tech Engineering Students Build Full-Sized Humanoid Robot
05/04/10 — VT’s College of Engineering Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory have built CHARLI (Cognitive Humanoid Autonomous Robot with Learning Intelligence), the first untethered, autonomous, full-sized, walking, humanoid robot with four moving limbs and a head, built in the United States. As CHARLI takes his first steps, anxious onlookers stand ready to catch him if he falls. His stride is short, but upright, as one foot is placed in front of the other in the basement of Virginia Tech’s Randolph Hall. Students prepare CHARLI for his walk at the group’s Randolph Hall basement facility (From left) Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory students Taylor Young,…


Virginia Tech Team to Build Battlefield Robots for 2010 Competition
12/16/09 — The roving, walking robotic soldiers of the “Terminator” films are becoming less sci-fi and more certain future every day. Now, a team of robotics researchers from the Virginia Tech College of Engineering will build a team of fully autonomous cooperative battle-ready robots as part of a 2010 international war games challenge that could spur real-life battle bots. The roving, walking robotic soldiers of the “Terminator” films are becoming less sci-fi and more certain future every day. Now, a team of robotics researchers from the Virginia Tech College of Engineering will build a team of fully autonomous cooperative battle-ready robots as…
