Abstract

The motion pattern generation of the 13-link semi-looper robot is discussed in this paper. The semi-looper robot can perform both motion patterns of a green caterpillar and a looper. It is adopted so that the serial link mechanism may achieve the semi-looper robot. A central pattern generator (CPG) is introduced to generate the motion pattern of the 13-link semi-looper robot. The CPG is composed of Matsuoka oscillators. The CPG's structure and design parameters of Matsuoka oscillators are discussed. Some simulations using the open dynamics engine (ODE) demonstrate the designed motion pattern of the 13-link semi-looper robot.
