Though this year’s stand up motion from the back was very – for loss of a better word – cool 🙂 it was not very efficient. It took too much time and it moved the robot too far away from the position where it fell down. So one of the big goals for 2012 was to rectify this problem. So far it seems we have succeeded. The video shows the first attempt at standing up from the back, and we expect to be able to make this a bit faster later.
