planar biped with compliance
« on: August 15, 2008, 12:24:19 PM »
Here are some videos of a project I'm helping with at the University of Michigan.

So far we are still trying to perfect the walking gait.  But the robot is designed to run as well.

The boom is there to constrain the robot to the surface of a sphere, it doesn't hold it up (well, it does, but just so that the torso won't hit the ground when it falls)

I was wondering how the other leg Jonathan made was working. I visited his lab in April at CMU and got a leg demonstration. The 'beast' is pretty darn scary if you ask me - I made it a point to stand behind his blast shield when he turned it on :P

Not fair he gets only one leg while you guys get two :P

Whats the power consumption on it? Whats next? I'd like to see it run!
