Abstract:

The problems posed by control of walking six-degree-of-freedom vehicles vary with specific task requirements. Different strategies are required for cruising supervisory control and precision foot placement. These, along with anthropometric and stereotypic considerations, directly affect the design of the manually operated controls and the degree to which multiple-axismultiple-task integration can be achieved within a single controller.
