Designing a Quadruped Robot – Teaser Video 2

Within a week or so I should be done designing a fancy new chassis for my quadruped robot with some neat fixes and features, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I’ve taken a short video of a basic walking gait. The idea here was to maximize the size and symmetry of the stability geometries. Before lifting each leg, the robot shifts the center of its chassis over the centroid of the stability triangle created by the grounded legs in order to maintain balance.
