Standing-up bipedal robot

This is a walking robot developed for the project called "Walking with Robots", in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering and the London Engineering Project, hosted a Young Peoples'. It was the opportunity for young people to explore visions of their future and the part robots will play. The most fundamental behaviours for bipedal robots are the motor behaviours, which allow the robot to stand up, walk, run, climb stairs etc. Walking behaviours for bipedal robots are often derived from classical control theory, in which a reference trajectory is specified for the robot to follow.

The robot is made exclusively for young people, which are enthusiastic to know how the robots work. It has the simplest mechanical way to walk, just 4 servo motors for biped walker with two degrees of freedom (DOF) per leg. The robot can walk forward or backwards and turn around in place left or right with variable speed. It has a stainless steel structure and black anodized aluminium servo brackets, with autonomous control system pre-writhed and modifiable. Moreover, batteries are on-board. The robot can be controlled in many ways. The simplest method is a static balanced gait to step-up each leg.
