• Exploring lift-off dynamics in a jumping robot 

      Aguilar, Jeffrey Jose (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-11-14)
      We study vertical jumping in a simple robot comprising an actuated mass spring arrangement. The actuator frequency and phase are systematically varied to find optimal performance. Optimal jumps occur above and below (but ...
