ANYmal is a quadrupedal robot designed for autonomous operation in challenging environments. Driven by special precisely torque-controllable actuators, the robot platform is capable of dynamic running and climbing in difficult terrain. Thanks to incorporated LIDAR and depth cameras, ANYmal can perceive its environment, accurately localize itself, autonomously plan its navigation path and carefully select footholds while walking.
ANYmal’s size is optimal in making it able to overcome obstacles and it can carry up to 15 kg additional payload. The platform setup is simple, requiring only one laptop, the robot itself and a battery charger. The onboard battery enables continuous operation for 2–4 hours depending on the activity. ANYmal is designed for real-world usage, is IP67 water- and dust-proof and the ruggedized enclosure protects the system from impacts.
