Walking locomotion theory has been drastically improved during the last decade and now the technology seems to be ready for industrial applications. More than 60 different climbing and walking machines developed in research laboratories and universities have been catalogued, but industrial applications are emerging very slowly. This article covers some of the activity and production run at the Institute for Industrial Automation (CSIC) related to development of prototypes for both research purposes and industrial applications as well.
