Hand-bot climbing a shelf

See the first climb of a shelf performed by the hand-bot. The robot launches a rope and then uses it as the main lift force. The handbot keeps its balance using its two arms which have a total of seven degrees of freedom. The Handbot detects the shelf side using infrared sensors located in its hands. The movements of the robot are fully autonomous with no remote control behind. You can find a paper describing this experiment on:
