 What is ARAT 4.1?

ARAT is a quadruped robot under development, equipped with a stability protection algorithm so that it can move on slopes, stairs, and rough terrain. When it encounters an obstacle, it can classify the obstacles around it with the sensors on it and act according to the obstacles it has classified.


Balance Protection

ARAT is capable of performing real-time kinetic calculations. Thanks to this feature, it can resist external impacts. When it receives a blow from the outside, tries to stay standing by changing its posture or making some movements. In the event that it receives a stronger blow than it can bear and falls, it can stand up again on its own without any outside support. Also, if ARAT is hit and overturned while working on a mission, it can continue on its course to continue its mission after it gets up.

Progress on the Route

ARAT can detect moving and inactive objects around it by mapping its environment thanks to the lidar sensors on it. While moving on a route, it can continue on its way by making movements to avoid hitting the objects around it.

Completely Domestic Production

All of the engines and electronic components used in the latest version of ARAT, which is still under development, were produced by Akınrobotics.

Controlling of ARAT

ARAT has a web-based control panel and can be controlled wirelessly. With the advanced balance algorithm on it, it can move in jump bounding mode in required areas. In addition, ARAT can autonomously track objects by image processing thanks to the stereo vision camera on it.

Physical Properties of ARAT

ARAT is 75 cm long, 44 cm wide, 58 cm high and weighs 27 kg. It has four legs, each of which consists of three joints, and there are 12 joints in total. It can carry a weight of about 9 kg.

It is equipped with 65 sensors in total so that it can define its surroundings, move according to the conditions of the terrain it is in, identify the locations of the objects around it and move without hitting these objects.

Development Process

The development process of ARAT has been going on for about four years. ARAT 1, the first version of ARAT 4.1, which is currently under development, started to be developed on 14.04.2018. A total of five ARATs have been developed so far.
