Rescuebot: Legged robots with compliant joints

We are using elastic joints to make our legged robots highly flexible. This means they interact softly with people, with the ground and with equipment that they come in contact with. This helps the robots negotiate uneven and unstable terrain as well as to absorb the impact of falls. These attributes make it ideal for disaster recovery, remote exploration and for consumer use.
