Quadcopter for a head helps robot walk tall

A PhD student at the University of Tokyo is attracting attention with “Aerial-Biped” his half-drone, half-robot creation.

The robot has two legs. As its head it has a quadcopter a drone lifted and propelled by four rotors. Animal-loving Azumi Maekawa says he has long been fascinated by the movements of animals, especially how creatures walk on two legs.

His aim was to make a robot walk like a real two-legged animal. The creation of Aerial-Biped took Maekawa longer than a year. Key to the design’s success was getting the robot’s legs right. Initially, the quadcopter was added to lift the robot when it lost its balance.
