Designing and control of biped robot are still open questions. Design of ankle joint which is considered one of the more compact with high power capacity and low weight is a big challenge. The very important role played by this joint during walking, makes its design and control the first step of having a robust walking biped. In this paper, a novel three dof hybrid mechanisms has been proposed. This mechanism is actuated hydraulically and uses cable technology for power transmission. The proposed solution fulfils the requirements induced by both geometrical and biomechanical constraints. At first, the geometrical and kinematics properties of the proposed solution have been developed. A simulation tool has been built using ADAMS software and used to carry out early design dimensioning of the several components. Singularity study is detailed showing the advantage of this new solution. Control method has been proposed and tested. Finally manufactured prototype of this solution is presented with preliminary results showing the performances of the mechanism. This mechanism is a part of an International patent accepted at INPI- France.
