Robotics company LimX Dynamics has released a video of updates to its humanoid robot, CL-1, showing the robot completing tasks such as climbing stairs and walking down slopes. 

In a blog post, the company said the CL-1 was able to perform these tasks as it “clos[ed] the loop between real-time perception, gait planning and locomotion control, and hardware and data stream.” 

During the demonstration, LimX said CL-1 perceives its terrain in real time, using perception control to “proactively adjust” its motion and allow it to walk smoothly onto a curb, climb stairs “dynamically and fluidly” and walk down a 15-degree slope. 

The tests took place both indoors and outdoors, as well as from afternoon to dusk to test the robot’s performance in different environmental conditions.

“CL-1 is one of the few humanoid robots around the world that achieves dynamic stair climbing based on real-time terrain perception,” the company said, “mainly thanks to LimX Dynamics’ advanced motion control and AI algorithms, along with proprietary high-performing actuators and hardware system.” 

LimX Dynamics said its humanoid robots are intended for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer applications, with a particular focus on hazardous scenarios, high-end customer service, automotive manufacturing and in-home services.
