Leg Lab’s first bipedal walking robots was Spring Turkey. “Developed as an experimental
platform for implementing force control actuation techniques, motion description and control techniques, and various walking algorithms,” there is no word as to whether it gobbled. Far from the rarefied academic atmosphere of Cambridge, another turkey robot earns it’s keep by catching poachers for the U.S. Forest Service in Arizona. AMREL wishes you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving, and hopes that none of the turkeys on your feasting table are mechanical.
