The application of Central Pattern Generator (CPG) has been realized in order to suppress flow disturbance caused by pressure variation of air supplied to pneumatic anti-vibration apparatus (AVA) with one degree-of-freedom. In this paper, CPG is applied to pneumatic AVA with two degrees-of-freedom. First, experimental results show that stable levitation of AVA is possible by using only CPG without PI compensator. Next, the suppression performances of PI compensator and CPG are compared. As a result, the superiority of performance by CPG is confirmed.
