Build design and behavior controls for six legged robots

Penelitian - Robots exploring workspaces by climbing stairs and performing tasks including carrying heavy loads, opening doors, cutting pipes and controlling valves. Researchers at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai designed a series of robots such as troops that behave to perform tasks in an industrial area.

Research on the legged robot has attracted the attention of academia and industry. Multi-input multi-input smart intelligent machines incorporate multiple adaptation systems in the environment and tasks. Mechanical design and control frameworks are challenging issues especially to build the characteristics required in the job.

Many companies and universities are designing different types of autonomous robots including Boston Dynamics as one of the remarkable organizations creating two and four foot robots including BigDog, Atlas and LS3. Six-foot robot has also been developed, such as Athlete (NASA), Whegs (Quinn) and Octopus (SJTU).

Ling Fang and Feng Gao reported a study on the development of synthesis type and behavior control on legged robots by introducing hexapod robots developed based on the synthesis method. The control framework for legged robots includes an actionable data layer, robot behavior layer and robot execution layer.

Each layer consists of several components and various experiments were performed on some of the hexapod robots. A summary of the synthesis type and design of built behavior controls will provide an integrated platform for communication and reference for the future progress of the legged robot.
