Java Simulator for Quadruped Walking Robot


Article Preview

With advances in science and technology, the interest to study the animals walking has developed the demand for building the legged robots. Physics-based simulation and control of quadruped locomotion is difficult because quadrupeds are unstable, under actuated, high-dimensional dynamical systems. We develop a simple control strategy that can be used to generate a large variety of gaits and styles in real-time, including walking in all directions (forwards, backwards, sideways, turning). The application named JQuadRobot is developed in Java and Java3D API. A Graphical User Interface and a simulator for a custom quadruped leg's robot and the main features of the interface are presented in this paper. This application is developed in Java and is essential in a development motion for legged robot. The friendly interface, allows any user to define and test movements for this robot. The cross-platform capability was the first reason to choose Java language for developing this application.
