— We describe a simple and low-cost humanoid leg design with compliant joints and springy feet. Mechanical compliance is achieved by combining visco-elastic material with metal. Joints and feet characteristics are evaluated by repeatedly dropping the system from a fixed height. Different joint configurations (silicone rubber, latex and brass) and foot(More)
—A novel and low-cost passively compliant mechanism is described that can be used with RC servos to actuate legged robots in tasks involving high dynamic loads such as bouncing. Compliance is achieved by combining visco-elastic material and metal parts. Joint response to dynamic loads is evaluated using real-world experiments and force data are obtained(More)
