The use of leg landing information for walking robot control
Houška P., Ehrenberger Z., Březina T., Singule V.
pages 118 - +10p., full text

The leg design is described in the contribution. Some possibilities of leg control and requirements related to both sensor system of the leg and complete robot are assigned. The assessment of the force, coming from sensor system, by which the endpoint of the leg acts on the terrain is considerably important. The information about leg landing is necessary for robot control in non-regular terrain. If the landing sensor provides information about magnitude and orientation of landing force, the algorithm of obstacles avoidance could be efficiently implemented based partially on this information.
