The Carnegie Mellon University Planetary Rover project is developing the Ambler, a six-legged robot designed for planetary exploration. The authors have developed reliable and efficient control, perception and planning algorithms suitable for navigating rugged terrain. The components have been integrated into a system that autonomously walks the Ambler along routes and over obstacles.
