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.
