Constructing walking robots is attractive but poses many inevitable problems. Solutions often involve behaviorbased approaches. Subsumption architecture (SSA)is an example effective in responsibility, adaptability, and robustness in contrast to knowledge-based SMPA architecture. Often, in SSA studies, robots are constructed centralized, sacrificing recoverability; SSA also has no learning. We propose a distributed hierarchy based on SSA by building a hierarchically distributed robot, in which each agent is build of SSA and having robust failure recovery. We study the validity of the proposed approach.
