Strider and TrotBot at | Mechanical Design 101
Just after I published my book Kinematic Synthesis of Mechanisms with its emphasis on leg mechanisms, I found two more interesting eight-bar legs from the designers at This is a Geogebra animation of the leg mechanism for the Strider walker. It is a symmetrical design that allows the formation of a second foot assembly by simply adding two more bars. Strider leg mechanism. This is an animation of the leg mechanism in the TrotBot walker.
