Revolutionizing Robotic Movements: SayTap Transforms Human Language into Quadrapedal Locomotion

As Seen On


In an increasingly digitized world, the emergence of SayTap is nothing short of a technological marvel. SayTap, a revolutionary system, is transforming the paradigms of human-robot interaction with its groundbreaking strategy of converting human language commands into quadrupedal locomotion. This transformative technology establishes seamless communication between the human command and the locomotion controller of four-legged robots or quadrupedal robots, revolutionizing the way we imagine robotic movements.

SayTap: A Leap Forward In Human-Robot Interaction

Upon a closer look at SayTap, one can discern the invaluable advantages this powerful technology offers in the realm of human-robot interaction systems. The key to its prowess lies in its unique approach to translating natural language, down to its nuances, into quantifiable actions. Transforming human commands to robotic actions, SayTap facilitates robots to comprehend and precisely respond to instructions, thereby forming a more natural human-robot interface.

Beyond interactive simplicity, SayTap’s innovative functionality acquaints robots with the capability to execute diverse locomotion behaviours, proving not just a huge scientific advancement but also a user-friendly technological upliftment.

Manifesting Human Commands: The Role of the Contact Pattern Template

Central to SayTap’s functionality is how it employs a contact pattern template, a sophisticated neural interface that serves as a conduit for communication between human commands and the locomotion controller. This neural interface works to translate higher-level instructions to low-level execution commands using a structured model.

The model uses a ‘desired foot contact pattern’ to interpret and predict the quadruped’s movement. This, in turn, adjusts the control frequency, thus generating a variety of locomotion behaviours corresponding to the instructions received.

Overcoming Limitations: The SayTap Approach

Traditionally, large language models (LLMs) struggle discerning low-level instructions. This happens mainly due to the non-standardized nature of representation in the magnitude and diversity of natural language. Equipped with a unique LLM prompt design, SayTap tackles this longstanding issue with finesse.

However, fulfilling this diverse behaviour requirement isn’t an initiative undertaken singlehandedly by the LLM prompt design. The magic of SayTap unravels when it meets an equally effective reward function. Together, they expose the SayTap controller to the feasible distribution of contact patterns, culminating in a precise movement – the Holy Grail of robotics.

From Theory to Practice: SayTap’s Real-world Integration

Taking this technological wizardry beyond theory, the results remain just as promising when SayTap is paired with real robot hardware. The capability of the SayTap method to align with locomotion controllers, allows it to enact the desired movements in physical robots. Leveraging such potential, SayTap could be pivotal in achieving diverse locomotion patterns that are seamlessly transferable to physical robotic systems.

As we stand at the brink of this technological revolution, it’s impossible not to envision a future where technologies like SayTap are integral components of everyday life, augmenting human capabilities and simplifying tasks. The success of SayTap gives a triumphant nod to this future, a future where human-robot interaction becomes as natural as a conversation. We invite you to imagine this future with us and partake in the marvel our digital realm is gradually unveiling.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
