Welcome to the 6th edition of the Workshop on Legged Robots.
This workshop was held at ICRA 2022 in May 27.
The recorded talks can be found here.
Most of the environments surrounding us are rough, unstable, deformable and unstructured, which is dangerous and difficult for humans to access.
In these environments, legged robots have inherent advantages in locomotion over their wheeled or tracked counterparts.
The ability of legged robots to traverse different types of terrains and step over obstacles makes them uniquely suited to perform tasks in various scenarios.
These scenarios include search and rescue missions, inspection in complex and cluttered environments, planetary exploration, agriculture, etc.
Despite their capabilities, there still remain many challenges in making legged robots suitable for a widespread deployment in the real-world.
This workshop continues to investigate the technological ingredients that are missing for an effective widespread deployment of legged robots.
Invited speakers from industry and academia will be featured alongside their robots,
and papers highlighting problems and solutions in this domain will be solicited.
