Abstract

Important tasks of mobile robots are environment recognition and obstacle avoidance to behave on real world. Legged type mobile robots can be adjusted for difficult terrains because robots have a high degree of freedom in order to three dimensional obstacle avoidance. In this paper, we propose an locomotion strategy on terrains having several different stiffness. A possibility of continuous walking is determined by force sensors mounted each leg of a quadruped robot. The presented approach is verified availability from experimental results using a prevalent quadruped robot called TITAN-VIII.
