System description

Source: Daniel Kühn, DFKI

The four-legged robot Pithekos II was developed at the DFKI as part of a master thesis and serves as an experimental platform for dynamic gaits. The dynamic walking is accomplished by a lightweight design, high joint speeds and an elastic foot structure. The robot is remote-controlled and capable of performing tight turns on various surfaces.
