    The moving mechanisms of the mobile robot are classified into the wheel system, the crawler system, and the leg system, of which the leg system provides the widest range of movement. However, the technical problems of the leg system, such as control of movement, must be solved by securing the dynamic stability through a mechanism allowing maximum freedom of movement. Aiming at the highest technical development of the legged walking robot, a biped walking robot was developed (displayed at the Tsukuba EXPO '85). This robot, equipped with all devices except a power source, achieved quasi-dynamic walking at 10 seconds per step.
