This robot is able walk the tightrope (translated). Well, it’s more of a shuffle than a walk, but still a lot better than we could do. In the video after the break you can see the bot starting on the platform to the right.

A few guys from Rutgers showed up at Maker Faire with Navi, their vehicle for the 2012 Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition. Powered by two huge lead acid batteries, Navi features enough high-end hardware to hopefully make it through or around just about any terrain.
