Why don't bipedal robots ever feature natural movement?

From my side I can provide two remarks. First the human have elastic actuators (muscles) with a lots of sensors for balance. Whereas robots have mostly rigid actuators with a few dampers here and ...

Hexapod walking algorithm

It does not matter whether the legs are mounted in a circle or not. You should be using inverse kinematics to place the tip of each foot on the ground. If you know the dimensions of your robot and ...

Why are bird-like bipedal robots more efficient than humanoid robots?

You might try searching IEEE Explore for papers on the subject. The IEEE sponsors a humanoid robotics conference each fall that publishes a journal. I attended one year and I think I recall a couple ...

Why do roboticists choose a bird-like leg over a humanoid leg?

One chooses different leg designs for different reasons. Sometimes there are specific design goals, involving the workspace, manipulability, and dynamics, but sometimes the designs are less ...

Are 8 cells of 1.2 V enough for my Quadruped(spider)?

If your batteries are GP260AAHC then the datasheet has 7800mA as the upper recommended discharge current, so you're probably ok as long as you don't move everything at once. Workaround might be to ...

Modelling/Theory for Quadraped Robot Leg Example

Most tutorials about kinematics and dynamics would teach you open-chain systems, like the typical robotic manipulator. While in this robot, the leg itself is a closed-chain system, which is quite ...
