The DLR Crawler - an Actively Compliant Walking Hexapod Robot
For planetary exploration as well as for search and rescue missions on Earth groups of hexapedal walking robots seem to be a promising alternative or support to wheeled and tracked vehicles. In this context, the DLR Crawler is a first laboratory prototype that is built to investigate the capabilities of hexapedal walking. Thus, it serves as a testbed for the development and evaluation of different control, gait and navigation algorithms. The experience gained with the DLR Crawler will be a valuable guide for the development of future hexapedal walking exploration robots.
