(Inverse) Ghost Robotics Minitaur doesn’t have any gears, hydraulics, or external sensors that would normally weigh a robot down and complicate the design. Minitaur is able to maneuver simply by sensing the force of objects it interacts with. Minitaur is able to maneuver simply by sensing the force of objects it interacts with.
The robot is still only semi-autonomous, and requires a person to direct it using a remote controller. However, that is just for direction and navigation. Along with its reactive behavior, Minitaur is also very good at escape maneuvers. It can get itself unstuck by performing any number of advanced movements. It also can walk with two broken legs,
