  author={Giuseppe Carbone and Alessandro G. Di Nuovo},
Hexapod robots are six-legged robotic systems, which have been widely investigated in the literature for various applications including exploration, rescue, and surveillance. Designing hexapod robots requires to carefully considering a number of different aspects. One of the aspects that require careful design attention is the planning of leg trajectories. In particular, given the high demand for fast motion and high-energy autonomy it is important to identify proper leg operation paths that… 
Hybrid Gait Planning of A Hexapod Robot
This paper compares the tripod gait and the crab-inspired gait for a specific hexapod to move forward and move backward; turn left and turn right and integrates the two gaits to apply them under different conditions.
Time delays in a HyperNEAT network to improve gait learning for legged robots
Gait generation for legged robots is an important task to allow an appropriate displacement in different scenarios. The classical manner to generate gaits involves handtuning design generating high
Multibody systems and simulation in matlab
The aim was to determine the kinematic properties of a virtual prototype of a mechanical system that has all the decisive features and is computationally stable and to evaluate the influence of the parameters of the mechanism which influence these kinematics.
Neuroevolutive Algorithms for Learning Gaits in Legged Robots
Gait generation for legged robots is a challenging task typically requiring either a hand-tuning design or a kinematic model of the robot morphology to compute the movements, generating a high

Design Issues for Hexapod Walking Robots
An overview of the state of the art on hexapod walking robots is given by referring both to the early design solutions and the most recent achievements, with careful attention to the main design issues and constraints that influence the technical feasibility and operation performance.
Design of Hexapod Walking Robots: Background and Challenges
This chapter deals with hexapod walking robot design and operation and proposes a design procedure that takes into account mechanical structure, leg configuration, actuating and drive mechanisms, payload, motion conditions, walking gait, and control system.
Multi-objective optimization of a leg mechanism using genetic algorithms
An evolutionary multi-objective optimization (EMO) methodology is applied to solve the complete leg mechanism optimization problem for all three objectives simultaneously and shows that useful insights into the design problem can be obtained by systematically starting with fewer objectives and gradually adding more objectives.
Identifying Ground-Robot Impedance to Improve Terrain Adaptability in Running Robots
This work aims to provide one method to identify ground-robot impedance so that control can be applied to emulate the aforementioned animal behaviour and indicates that the method is suitable for use at high speeds.
