Abstract

When mammals walk or run, they use energy stored in their tendons during limb movement. We focused on the trot of a horse, realized in a mobile quadruped robot. Changes in the angle of the equine fetlock during walking or running stretch tendons, storing energy. We propose realizing horse-like gaits in a mobile quadruped robot and designed and fabricated the mobile quadruped robot PONY.
