Contact Processing within Walking Robots' Design I I. Abstract This work is to deal with virtual and real development of walking robots. The work is divided in two parts -development of virtual environment for designing and investigation of walking robots, and detailed presentation of two walking robots -six-legged robot "ANTON" and biped robot "ROTTO". In the first part the contact processing, which is an important part of multi-domain simulation task is discussed in details. It includes

However, the most widespread multi-body simulators, like Matlab/SimMechanics, don't support the contact processing. Other multi-body simulators, like Vortex or ODE, support the contact processing, but are more limited in the rest of the functionality. This thesis presents the overview of the most popular techniques in the contact processing and the implementation of the chosen contact processing technique into Matlab/Simulink. The collision detection has been implemented using existing software tool Solid. The contact response for both contact phenomena -collision forces and friction forces -has been developed for the force-based approach. The functionality of the developed contact processing has been performed by the contact tasks of a sixlegged and biped robots as well as of a number of different geometrical objects and has been compared with experiment results. In the second part of this work a new improved six legged mobile robot "ANTON" and a new biped robot "ROTTO" are presented. Their mechanical structure, sensor system and control system are discussed in details. The hierarchically and modular build control algorithms are presented. The Software-in-the-Loop and Rapid Control Prototyping frameworks, which are used by robot development, are presented. An industrial Ethernet-based real-time communication protocol is introduced and the communication ability between the robot-side hardware and PC-side control system is investigated.
