The AI Quadrupedal Robot Competition (HKSAR) Briefing 全港創新AI四足仿生機械人比賽 2024 簡介會

With the development of science and technology, the application fields of robots are gradually expanding, and people's functional requirements for robots are also getting higher and higher. For robots, they can be divided into mobile robots and non-mobile robots. Mobile robots can be divided into wheeled robots, crawler robots and footed robots. When a wheeled vehicle is traveling on relatively flat terrain, it has the characteristics of simple control and smooth and fast movement. However, when traveling on soft ground or rugged terrain, the moving efficiency of the wheels is greatly reduced, and it may even become impossible to move. Legged robots can work in unstructured and harsh environments. Since they can adapt to complex environments, quadruped robots have a wide range of application scenarios.


The first type is a means of transportation in the wild environment. Existing man-made land transportation tools are difficult to use, and most of them require traditional transportation methods such as human power and animal power. Quadruped robots can move flexibly in complex outdoor environments and can bear large loads. Therefore, quadruped robots can be used as a potential transportation tool to help humans complete transportation tasks in the wild.


The second type is an investigative tool in dangerous environments. In dangerous environments, such as earthquake-stricken areas, there are many areas that need to be explored but are difficult to reach manually. Quadrupeds have greater mobility than humans, so quadruped robots have the potential to help humans explore complex and dangerous unknown environments. Robots can be equipped with different sensors for different tasks. Quadruped robots can help find survivors during disaster area rescue.


The third type is a service-type quadruped robot. Quadruped robots can complete the behaviors of four-legged animals (such as cats, dogs, etc.), such as guiding the blind and serving as pets, but omit the essential behaviors of ordinary animals such as eating and sleeping, and do not require long-term human training. Therefore, quadruped robots can be used as potential service robots, which have advantages such as convenience and cleanliness compared with ordinary four-legged animals.


隨着科技發展,機械人的應用領域逐漸擴大,而人們對機械人的功能需求也越來越高。對於機械人來說,可以分為移動機械人和非移動機械人。移動機械人又可以分為輪式機械人、履帶式機械人和足式機械人。輪式車輛在相對平坦的地形上行駛時,具有控制簡單、運動平穩快速的特點,但在鬆軟地面或崎嶇不平的地形上行駛時,車輪的移動效率大大降低,甚至無法移動。足式機械人可以在非結構化和惡劣的環境中工作,由於可以適應複雜的環境,因此四足機械人的應用場景廣泛。


第一種為野外環境下的運輸工具。現有的人造陸地運輸工具都難以應用,大多需要人力和畜力等傳統運輸方式。而四足機械人能夠在複雜的野外環境下靈活運動,並可以承擔大量負載,因此四足機械人可以作為一種潛在的運輸工具,幫助人類完成野外的運輸任務。


第二種為危險環境下的偵查工具。在危險的環境中,如地震災區,存在很多需要探索但人力難以到達的區域。四足動物有着比人類更強大的運動能力,所以四足機械人有幫助人類探索複雜危險的未知環境的潛在能力。針對不同的任務機械人可以搭載不同的傳感器,在災區救援中四足機械人可以幫助尋找倖存人員。


第三種為服務型四足機械人。四足機械人可以完成四足動物(如貓、狗等)的行為,如導盲和作為寵物等,卻省去了吃飯睡覺等普通動物必不可少的行為,並且無需長時間的人為訓練。因此四足機械人可以作為潛在的服務型機械人,相比於普通的四足動物有着方便、潔淨等優勢。
