The properties of the system that controls the distance between body and ground was investigated in the stick insect Carausius morosus. The insect walked on a lightweight double treadwheel under open-loop or closed-loop conditions. The open-loop investigations show that the dynamic behaviour of the height-control system in the walking animal can be described in terms of a simple proportional system with negligible dynamic properties, and it is therefore much simpler than the height-control… CONTINUE READING
