SCQPR (Stairs Climbing Quadruped Precise Robot)
The purpose of this research is to describe a new design of a quadruped robot, called “SCQPR (Stairs Climbing Quadruped Precise Robot)”. SCQPR-I is capable of walking, climb up and down a stairway, with its mechanical simplicity.
The quadruped robot has eight degrees of freedom. Each link of the leg has a 40 cm length, and hence, the length of each leg is 80 cm. Each joint produces 84.80 N.m. Most of its parts are manufactured with aluminum by considering the balance between rigidity and weight. The mechanically simple design and use of commercially available components make SCQPR-I easily assembly and maintainable. The platform also features long operational time, on board sensor processing, dedicated motion control.
