Japanese Scientists from Osaka University, inspired by the example of the robot cat Wildcat from Boston Dynamics, began work on their own four-legged robot. The design was decided to use a limited number of pneumatic muscles. This allowed a little easier control system, without compromising the quality of gait. Proper coordination and stability is achieved largely particular skeleton structure. In the demonstration video can be seen that the robot is actually moving smoothly and confidently, but while he uses lateral support.
