Monopod Hopping on Rough Planetary Environments

Recent successes of missions such as the MSL and the Rosetta have increased the interest in the robotic exploration of other planets and asteroids. Although most of these missions envisage the use of rovers, legged robots have shown the potential to …

Compliant Terrain Legged Locomotion Using a Viscoplastic Approach

Legged locomotion is a rapidly advancing area in robotics, yet still a large number of open questions exist. This work focuses on the foot-terrain interaction and its effect on the motion of a one-legged system. This interaction is usually tackled by …
