NRW2011: CMU Robotics Club

The Carnegie Mellon Robotics Club, founded in 1984, is one of the oldest collegiate robotics clubs in the country. We stopped by again this year during National Robotics Week to see what kind of robots they have been working on recently.

The HyLo Project looked interesting, with the goal of developing robots capable of hybrid locomotion (HyLo). The Stairbot is an early example of this.

The MonkeyBot is the continuation of the HyLo project, with current efforts focusing on control.

Another one of the many projects under development was a quadrotor helicopter.

The club also has an excellent selection of shirts available.

Up next is a performance of the CMU Robotics Club's RobOrchestra.
