Stanford Doggo: An Open-Source, Quasi-Direct-Drive Quadruped

05/10/2019 ∙ by Nathan Kau, et al. ∙ 0

This paper presents Stanford Doggo, a quasi-direct-drive quadruped capable of dynamic locomotion. This robot matches or exceeds common performance metrics of state-of-the-art legged robots. In terms of vertical jumping agility, a measure of average vertical speed, Stanford Doggo matches the best performing animal and surpasses the previous best robot by 22 presented with focus on our quasi-direct-drive design methodology. The hardware and software to replicate this robot is open-source, requires only hand tools for manufacturing and assembly, and costs less than 3000.
