Paper Abstract

This paper describes two six-legged robots with hexagonal architecture: the first one, of electropneumatical type, is controlled by a neurological information system based on signals captured by optical and ultrasonic sensors; the second one, of electrical type, is controlled on the basis of a detailed study (starting from the Song & Waldron's theorem) of various kinds of kinematical gaits and of the transitions from one gait to the other.
