In this video the walking robot ‘Dribbel’ is presented, which has been built at the Control Engineering group of the University of Twente, the Netherlands. This robot has bee n designed with a focus on minimal energy consumption, using a passive dynamic approach. It is a so-calledfour-legged 2D walker; the use of four legs prevents it from falling sideways. During the design phase extensive use has been made of 20-sim. This power port based modeling package was used to simulate the dynamic… CONTINUE READING
