Abstract:

In the wide rang of possible biological and technical solutions for legged terrestrial locomotion, quadrupeds represent a compromise between leightweight construction,dynamic stability, and usage of self-stabilizing effects and minimization of neutral control. Several biochemical features indicate that mammals form interesting and preferable paragons for the construction of walking machines, even if their morphology and locomotory functions in some issues seem to be more complicated than that of the phylogenetically older amphibians and reptiles.
