We studied stilt-like dynamic walking by a 1-legged robot with a skate-like shoe for a foot and an overhead rotor to stabilize posture. The robot remains upright by rocking the foot left and right and rotating the overhead rotor. This paper describes control for stilt-like dynamic walking combining rocking and yaw angle control.
