StarlETH is a quadruped robot based on the high-compliant series elastic leg StarlETH. It was developed at our lab for fast, efficient, and versatile locomotion on four legs. Using the same leg design but with one additional degree of freedom per leg, we will be able to move highly dynamic using different gaits, such as bounding, trotting, or running.
This wee robot can right itself if it falls and runs at 1.5 mph. It also handles obstacles a bit better than Big Dog and has improved hip movement. You can see it fall below – it has active and passive damping so it can either right itself in one motion or bounce around a bit to fix its gait.
Just take a look what this can do! Pretty impressive!
