Abstract

This paper describes the design of a battery driven bipedal robot, which uses 6-DOF parallel mechanisms for its each leg. We have designed this considering a bipedal robot as the leg module that is sufficient for practical use as a multi-purpose locomotor of the robot system. This robot is applicable to various fields, such as medical, welfare and entertainment. In the design of the robot, we have reduced the weight to the maximum extent, taking advantage of the features of the parallel mechanism which the mechanism rigidity is high. Using the developed bipedal locomotor, dynamic walking with the step time of 0.96 sec/step and the step length of 0.2 m/step was conducted, and the effectiveness of its mechanism was confirmed.
