On the energetics of quadrupedal bounding with and without torso compliance

Abstract

This paper examines the influence of torso compliance on the efficiency of quadrupedal running with a bounding gait. Two sagittal-plane models, one with and one without torso compliance, are developed in a template setting. The models feature non-trivial leg mass, and are coupled with a simple leg recirculation controller to generate bounding motions… (More)
