This paper introduces MABEL, a new platform for the study of bipedal locomotion in robots. One of the purposes of building the mechanism is to explore a novel powertrain design that incorporates compliance, with the objective of improving the power efficiency of the robot, both in steady state operation and in responding to disturbances. A second purpose is to inspire the development of new feedback control algorithms for running on level surfaces and walking on rough terrain. A third… CONTINUE READING
