Biologically Accurate Robotic Legs Walk
Researchers from the University of Arizona have produced a robotic set of legs which they believe is the first to fully model walking in a biologically accurate manner. The neural architecture, musculoskeletal architecture, and sensory feedback pathways in humans have been simplified and built into the robot, giving it a remarkably human-like walking gait. The biological accuracy of this robot may help the researchers understand how spinal-cord-injury patients can recover the ability to walk.
