System description

Asguard III is a mobile robot with 4 actuated legged wheels and a passive body degree of freedom. The wheel shape allows the robot to negotiate uneven terrain and climb stairs. This robot is based on the Asguard II platform that was equipped with additional sensors and a very powerful onboard computer. The sensor head features a laser scanner, a stereo camera system and an inertial measurement unit. These sensors enable the robot to recognize the environment and to navigate autonomously through unknown areas.
