  • Patent number: 9222493
    Abstract: A walking machine that includes a chassis with an operator interface, a main controller in data communication with the operator interface, at least two leg members operatively connected to the chassis, and a power system in data communication and electrical communication with the main controller. Each leg member includes a leg control system that includes a leg microcontroller in data communication with the main controller and at least a first electro hydrostatic actuator in electrical communication with the leg microcontroller. The power system includes an electrical generator, power supply electronics in electrical communication with the electrical generator, an electrical storage medium in electrical communication with the electrical generator and in parallel with the power supply electronics, and an electrical power bus for distributing power from the power system to the leg control systems.
