Minimizing Energy Consumption Leads to the Emergence of Gaits in Legged Robots

Pre-programmed fixed gait patterns are used to achieve effective robotic locomotion. However, this approach limits the ability to perform general locomotion in diverse terrains and at different speeds. A recent paper shows that minimizing energy consumption plays a key role in the emergence of natural locomotion patterns in flat and complex terrains at different speeds. Legged robots are being developed ...

Price shock: Why are energy prices rising so sharply?

Energy prices have jumped in recent months – as global demand rises and supply wanes Yesterday Electric Ireland announced plans to raise its electricity and gas prices from November – just three months after its last price hike. It’s the latest company to increase energy costs more than once this year – meanwhile Energia has announced three separate increases, with ...
