This movie illustrates part of the work that was done in the past years during Prof. Remy's time at the Autonomous Systems Lab. Inspired by nature, the team built different types of electrically driven robots that can do various maneuvers from slow and careful climbing to very robust dynamic trotting. This video explains how it is done.
