I'm doing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at McGill University. I work in the Ambulatory Robotics Lab and am involved in the Scout II (a dynamically stable four legged robot) and PAW robots (four legs, with wheels at the ends). I implemented galloping on Scout II in January 2003, the first time that this has ever been done. The homepage for the lab is www.cim.mcgill.ca/~arlweb. In the past I have worked on the University of Alberta's Polar Bear robot, a 900 lb hydraulically actuated system that was used to follow people outdoors as part of an NSERC defence-industrial grant. Schlumberger WesternGeco was the industrial sponsor for this project. The Polar Bear was also a competitor at the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (www.igvc.org) for a number of years and is the undefeated Tug-of-War champion.

Howdy. Well, since I can't post on the main pages, I thought that I'd place a relevant link to the Roach Legs are the Future! article. I got to see one of the Sprawlita robots while I was at the AMAM 2003 conference in Kyoto, Japan. Check out the video from my trip to see some neat footage of the Sprawlita robot chugging along (I slowed down the video so that you can see the legs move better, too).
BTW, there are also some videos of the Sprawlita robot on the AMAM video page.
