Framework for developing bio-inspired morphologies for walking robots
This work is performed in collaboration with the Functional morphology and biomechanics research group in Germany. We propose a framework for transferring animal morphologies to robots through detailed scans and kinematics and present how it can improve the movement versatility, dexterity, and durability of the robot in comparison to conventional designs. For more details see Billeschou et al., Appl. Sci. 2020.
Building blocks and modular structure of Locokit
The building blocks, are kept simple, in order to make each block light and cheap to produce. The building kit consists of the various modules for constructing different types of walking robot (see Locokit).
