3D Printed Walking Robot (Klann Linkage): This walking robot has been a project that I have been wanting to have a go at for a while now and I finally got. PDF | On Dec 1, , Jaichandar Kulandaidaasan Sheba and others published Design and evaluation of reconfigurable Klann mechanism. PDF | In this paper, discuss the spider mechanism (Klan’s mechanism) for any random movements, whenever the transformation by wheel is not possible.

The design of the Klann mechanism is portable with less linkage for movement. Point M’ is the central symmetry of point M through point O. Hide previous three circles and line. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikibooks.


Hide the bisecting plane. A full device consists of at least three pairs of legs, which means a total of six legs. The linkage consists of the frame, a crank, two grounded rockers, and two couplers all connected by pivot joints.

Klann linkage – Wikipedia

We will consider the stride length as an input as well here input 0as table 2 uses bigger stride length. Humanoid list Android list Hexapod list. Create two line in the plane containing smaller regular octagon.


By “connecting the dots” without suffix, “x” suffix and “y” suffix, we can derive a first meaning from the drawing, showing us the frame and the leg in two positions. Translate point M mapping point O to. Also reflect plane P in this plane to obtain plane P’. Mobile robots and uncrewed vehicles.

Klann linkage work on the basis of kinematics where all links gives relative motion with each other. Point D is their intersection. It was developed by Joe Klann in as an expansion of Burmester curves which are used to develop four-bar double-rocker linkages such as harbor crane booms.

The remaining rotation of the crank allows the foot to be raised to a predetermined height before returning to the starting position and repeating the cycle. Retrieved from ” https: This book will also talk about the relevant patent s. Here we use those tables, but with the point description written next to it.

Draw a sphere centered on point N through point B. Friction is required for motion between the legs and surface so it can hold, otherwise it will slip. Patent 6, are as follow: It converts the rotatory motion linjage linear motion, and looks like an animal walking.


This article needs additional citations for verification. A big thanks has to go to the patent holder Joseph Klann for his website, [1] which is a great reference and for uploading pictures [2] to Wikimedia Commons. Unmanned surface vehicle USV. Create a plane bisecting the remaining regular octagon.

Rotate previous regular octagon around this line mapping point G to point I to obtain another regular octagon.

As the author of this book, I would like to cite larger sections of the patents. Show previous hidden three leg.

Hide pointline lonkage, and triangle containing point A”. The number of links in the Jansen mechanism is greater than in the Klann klann, and is more costly. Point C is the intersection of the two circles. Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources. Call the two vertices of the triangle in the circle.

Connect segment AC and MD. In yz-plane, draw circle centered on M of radius 1. It fits into the technological space between these walking devices and axle-driven wheels.
