We have compiled a quick tour video (8 minutes, narrated) highlighting several of our projects over the past few years.  More information on all of our projects can be found on these pages.  Note: Sorenson Quicktime is recommended for Windows and MAC.  Cinepak is recommended for UNIX.


The Leg Lab at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab is dedicated to studying legged locomotion and building dynamic legged robots. We are specialists in exploring the roles of balance and dynamic control. We are interested in simulating and building creatures which walk, run, and hop like their biological counterparts.

We have three reasons for pursuing this research:


From time to time, we offer the graduate class, Legged Locomotion in Robots and Animals.  For fall 1999, it is MIT course number 6.894.


Discover Our site has been selected as a valuable Internet resource for Discovery Channel School's Discover Magazine theme for fall 1997. We are featured in the Assignment Discover Program See How They Run.
