This paper describes the basic system and design of a quadruped walking robot TITAN XI. TITAN XI is designed to perform construction task on the operation site of steep slopes. Such a task is strongly demanded especially in Japan to construct highway in mountainous area. TITAN XI will be suspended by tethers on the steep slopes and walks around by four legs to avoid the damage of the ferro-concrete frames and perform the task to drill deep holes for rock bolts.
