Title: Jumping and landing motion of a humanoid robotic leg with pneumatic artificial muscles
Key words: One-legged robot, pneumatic actuator, bionics design
Introduction: A humanoid robotic leg is built in order to explore the properties of pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs). In contrast to motors, PAMs are more easily to produce great force instantaneously and withstand impact force due to its flexibility. Jumping and landing motion are what we are interested in since they demonstrate the characteristics of PAMs mentioned above.
