Meet ANYmal, your new inspector

Extreme mobility

ANYmal robot stairs climbing

ANYmal’s legs provide unparalleled mobility when moving up and down stairs, climbing over obstacles, steps, and gaps, and crawling into tight spaces. It delivers reliable performance in harsh indoor and outdoor environments and through rain, splash water, wind, snow, and dust.

  • ANYmal is fully protected against water and dust (IP67) and able to operate in humid and dusty conditions. In case of exposure to hazardous substances, rinse your ANYmal with water to release it from contamination.

  • Built for tough jobs, we designed ANYmal and its payload with impact protection for long-term operation.

  • Programmed for dexterity, ANYmal is able to get back on its feet should it lose balance.

  • ANYmal’s perception system operates in all light conditions including bright sunlight and full darkness.

Full autonomy

ANYmal autonomously navigates complex multi-story environments. Once guided through the environment, the robot remembers every detail and finds the quickest route to perform its mission. During operation, the robot’s system safely avoids obstacles and reliably moves over rough terrain.

Show & go

Teach ANYmal once where to go and what to do for repetitive inspection routines.

Obstacle avoidance

Built-in depth sensors perceive obstacles around the robot for smooth navigation.

Large-scale localization

ANYmal localizes at centimeter-accuracy in both confined spaces and large open environments.

Tele-operation

Whenever needed, take over control and operate ANYmal manually with a view from its front and back cameras.

Automatic docking

After finishing its mission, ANYmal connects itself to a docking station for recharging.

Range extension

Expand ANYmal’s inspection routes by deploying multiple docking stations at different locations.

ANYmal carries built-in computation, eliminating the need for continuous network communication. If available, ANYmal connects through WiFi and optionally 4G/LTE.

Wifi icon

WIFI

ANYmal’s built-in 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz WiFi network connects to an available network or creates its own local network.
4G LTE icon

4G/LTE

Enable 4G/LTE telecommunication with an add-on module.

Inspection intelligence

ANYmal’s inspection payload provides visual, thermal, and acoustic insights for condition monitoring of equipment and infrastructure. The pan-tilt unit is used for scanning the environment around the robot and accurately positioning the built-in sensors for inspections of points of interest. AI-based inspection algorithms analyze the sensory data to interpret values, classify results, and detect anomalies.

Zoom camera

The visual camera provides a 20× optical zoom to take clear images and videos at far distances at 4K resolution.

Thermal camera

The thermal camera provides precise temperature readings in a range of -20–500°C without physical interaction.

Spotlight

The LED spotlight is used to support visual inspections in low-light conditions.

Ultrasonic microphone

Directional microphone for recording acoustic measurements in the audible and ultrasonic frequency range.

Pan-tilt unit

The high-range motion of the pan-tilt unit together with the robot base motion positions the sensors to check hard-to-reach places.

Edge computer

Built-in computation analyzes and protocols sensor readings, eliminating the need for continuous network communication.

  • A broad range of analog instruments and indicators can be digitized. Once trained on a type of instrument, the value or state is reliably identified.
