The Control Engineering Group at the University of Twente is involved in research directed towards the realization of an energy-efficient humanoid robot. A prototype robot, named Dribbel, has been constructed and is used to study and analyze energy efficient locomotion based on passive dynamic walkers. The design and construction of Dribbel has been described in a previous issue of Mikroniek . This article focuses on the design and implementation of the latest addition to this robot: actuated ankles.
