StarlETH is a quadruped robot based on the high-compliant series elastic leg ScarlETH. It was developed at our lab for fast, efficient, and versatile locomotion on four legs. Using the same leg design but with one additional degree of freedom per leg, we will be able to move highly dynamic using different gaits, such as bounding, trotting, or running.

At the Scientifica 2011, visitors could play around with StarlETH. Using a 3D CAD mouse, they could change its posture while pushing the robot.
