  • Asimo robot gait

    G'day all,

    This question is really just an excuse to be the first BIOMCH-L youtube
    reference :-)

    I saw the Asimo robot up close today here in Brisbane. It is impressive, but
    what interested me was the way it walks with flexed knees. When running the
    degree of knee flexion increases further. I am wondering if anyone knows why
    the Honda engineers did that - since the objective is to be as humanoid as
    possible, the flexed knee must clearly be such an advantage that they
    couldn't avoid it.

    Look forward to the discussion!

    Chris
