One-Armed Robot Knocks Obstacles Out Of Its Way

As if quadruped robots weren't scary enough, now they are adding arms to them so they can move obstacles or carry objects.

Eventually, their centaur-style robot will consist of a quadruped locomotion platform and a pair of arms. Currently, the team is testing one prototype arm attached to the front of the four-legged robot. To demonstrate how the HyQ-Centaur could operate, an obstacle is placed in its path with the robot arm being remotely controlled to knock it out of the way.
