Abstract

The purpose of this project is to take lessons learned from past MQPs, current industry products, and current research to create a quadrupedal platform capable of attaining unsupported walking. The team designed the platform to utilize series elastic actuation, force-sensing feet, and custom hardware to create a modular and easily expandable platform for future project use. CNC milling and water-jetting were used to manufacture the complete platform which was then vigorously tested under its own weight to determine its capabilities.
