Legged robots are a type of mobile robot. They are somewhat a recent innovation in robotics. However, many or all bipedal models are not practical seeing as they are cumbersome and slow. Most successful legged robots have 4 or 6 legs for further stability. This legs-over-wheels approach lends itself for use in all-terrain purposes seeing as legs are more effective in an uneven environment than wheels.
Legged robots include:
Legged robots include one-legged hopping robots sometimes called pogo stick robots, bipedal robots, quadrupedal robots, and hexapod (robotics),
