Our IRAD industrial dual-arm robot was programmed and tested with compliant behavior. Watch the Youtube video here.

This is a big deal because robots in the past have either been strong and stiff (like most industrial robots) or compliant and safe (like the Meka Dreamer). But, there hasn't been much crossover. Now, we show a compliant robot that's capable of performing industrial tasks. This was possible due to the high bandwidth of our Agile Planet controllers, which provide control rates up to 1,000 Hz.
