Perception System Passive vision fused with different types of ranging radars.
Navigation Navigation is fully automatic in locally mapping of ab unknown environment.
Learning capability The robot learns to perform skilled tasks when working interactively with the operator.
Adaptive motion control system The hybrid locomotion system provides rough terrain negotiating capability and wide speed range at the same time.
Manipulation capability The two arm manipulator is able to do humanlike tasks by manipulating and/or using tools.
