A novel design of a biped robot inspired by domestic cats for fast running is introduced. The skeletomuscular system of a cat is analysed and applied to determine the link parameters and the linkage structure of the proposed mechanism. The linkage design of the leg mechanism is explained and a kinematic analysis based on vector loop equations is performed. The effectiveness of the proposed mechanism is verified experimentally. The biped robot runs at an average speed of 2 m/s at a step… Expand

Adaptive Dynamic Walking of a Quadruped Robot on Natural Ground Based on Biological Concepts
It is shown that CPGs can be the center of sensorimotor coordination, and that the neural system model simply defining the relationships between CPGS, sensory input, reflexes and mechanical system works very well even in complicated tasks such as adaptive dynamic walking on unstructured natural ground.

Modeling and Experiments of Untethered Quadrupedal Running with a Bounding Gait: The Scout II Robot
Comparisons of models and experiments involving Scout II, an untethered four-legged running robot with only one actuator per compliant leg, contribute to the increasing evidence that apparently complex dynamically dexterous tasks may be controlled via simple control laws. Expand
Towards a bio-inspired leg design for high-speed running.
A new design paradigm for a robotic leg inspired by musculoskeletal structures is introduced, and the central hypothesis is that employing a tendon-bone co-location architecture not only provides compliance in the leg, but can also reduce bone stresses caused by bending on structures. Expand
