A visit to Bremen

I had the chance to visit the Robotic Laboratory at Bremen University recently. First, I met the famous autonomous wheelchair Rolland, which was quite useful, but not as impressive as the legged robots!

The scorpio robot seems to be used for rough terrain walking, apparently a very military application. It could even climb some obstacles and they had manufactured every piece. I've added a videoclip in my web that I captured there.

Most work at Bremen is carried out by PhD students paid with grants. The Robotics Department is a great place to apply for if mechatronics is your area.
