The UWCC Biped robot in action at the 1990 Robot Olympics in Glasgow. This robot is a product of Cardiff University. It consists of a pair of life- size aluminium legs. Pneumatic actuators at the joints enable this robot to walk with a rolling gait. Both feet are equipped with strain guages to measure the rolling motion, with a feedback mechanism to prevent the robot falling over.
