Markus Eich The Physical Robot Asguard (II) LiPoly Battery 30V/10Ah PC 104 Onboard Computer Modular Camera Section (Zoom / IR) Custom FPGA Sensor/Motor Board 4x Faulhaber 24V DC 83W Weight: 11.5 kg 95 cm 50 cm

6 6 / 14 ASGUARD: A Hybrid Legged-Wheel Security and SAR-Robot Using Bio-Inspired Locomotion for Rough Terrain Dipl. Inf. Markus Eich CPG Based Locomotion Control (I) Central Pattern Generators in biological systems are self- sustaining neural circuits which produce rhythmic oscillations. These patterns can be found in biological systems (from insects to humans), where rhythmic actuation is required (e.g. walking, chewing). Eight legged scorpion robotHadrurus arizonensis

8 8 / 14 ASGUARD: A Hybrid Legged-Wheel Security and SAR-Robot Using Bio-Inspired Locomotion for Rough Terrain Dipl. Inf. Markus Eich Adaptive Proprioceptive Control (I) Key idea and innovation for compliant legs:  No fixed motion pattern for different types of terrain  Adjustment of CPG internal control loop  Use of „adaptive spring“, based on proprioceptive data (energy distribution for each leg) Adaptive control based on proprioceptive data
