Developing a Leg-Wheel Hybrid Mobile Robot Using LabVIEW and CompactRIO

Figure 1. Quattroped - A Leg-Wheel Hybrid Mobile Platform

"The rugged and modular CompactRIO system is extremely suitable for mobile robot development, where size, weight and performance are important factors. Well-defined integration between LabVIEW and the NI hardware significantly reduces the time and efforts of developers in performing system integration."

- Pei-Chun Lin, Department of Mechanical Engineering, National Taiwan University

The Challenge:
Developing an energy-efficient leg-wheel hybrid mobile robot that can drive quickly and smoothly on flat terrain and can stably negotiate natural or artificial uneven terrain.

The Solution:
Using NI LabVIEW and CompactRIO with various I/O modules to rapidly integrate the mechanical, electrical and software elements of our design into a functional robot prototype.
