DRACO: A ROS based liquid cooled bipedal platform with Luis Sentis


Written by Ricardo Tellez


This episode is dedicated to all those people that are designing the behaviour of their robots for the Robocup competition.

Today we are going to talk about bipeds using ROS with liquid cooling systems.

But before going into that, let me remind you about our ROS online academy. Yes, at the Construct we have created an online academy named The Robot Ignite Academy which contains a ROS learning path for beginners. The path is composed by:

Now let me introduce you Luis Sentis. Luis is an associated professor in aerospace engineering at University of Austin in Texas and a holds a PhD from Stanford about humanoid robots. He is also founder of Apptronik Systems and member of the board. Apptronik a company developing actuators and controllers for robots with high power and high efficiency. They are about to launch their latest product, the DRACO bipedal platform, which relies on their actuators and controllers.

Welcome to the podcast Luis!
