BigDog The most advanced rough terrain robot by Boston Dynamics

Sense

The BigDog gathers information through it's locomotion, joint position, joint force, ground load, and gyroscope. It uses all of these sensors in order to assess it's position and maintain balance so that it can transport its payload no matter what.

Plan

Using the information from the sensors, the BigDog computes the changes it needs to make in order to keep its balance and move towards its goal.

Act

After figuring out the changes it needs to make, the BigDog changes the positions of its joints in order to keep its balance and move forward.
