Project Description

TALOS

The humanoid robot that integrates the latest cutting-edge robotics technology

Torque control

The bipedal humanoid TALOS is fully torque-controllable thanks to the torque sensor feedback in all joints, which enables powerful sensing and multi-contact motions. The closed loop torque control can be used for whole-body control inverse dynamics and safe interaction with the environment.

TALOS EtherCAT communication network

EtherCAT Network

TALOS’ EtherCAT communication network allows to run control loops at 1 kHz, and up to 5 kHz, which enables TALOS to have highly reactive and dynamic motions.

6kg Payload per arm

TALOS has a payload of 6 Kg with each arm fully extended, because it was designed having in mind the use of heavy industrial tools. This capacitates the robot for effectively perform tasks in environments such as the Factory of the Future.

Frequently Asked Questions

TALOS’ Torque control has a low latency of 1kHz.

We provide a state estimation from IMU+kinematics out-of-the-box, a system for fusing this odometry with additional external measurements should be tackled with an additional estimator out of the real-time ros_control loop. This would be safer for the whole body torque control that rely on the CoM estimation.

Via ros_control, you have access to the encoders, IMU, torque sensors at a joint level, Force/Torque sensors on the wrists and anckles and temperature sensors of the robots.

Yes, the URDF includes CoM position, mass and inertia tensors. This model has been extracted from the CAD and it was validated by the full body inverse dynamics and torque control on the robot.
