Here we have another one of the many robotics projects to use ROS, the Robot Operating System, running on a Raspberry Pi 4, and programmed in Python. What makes this one special is that it balances on two wheeled legs, can move at 2 m/s, can carry up to 80kg, and can balance all by itself. It can jump down a couple of stairs and land on its feet like a cat – it’s a little unnerving, but it points the way to a future where delivery robots won’t be scuppered by having to go up stairs.
