Abstract
Walking robots are designed to cope with di?cult, challenging terrain. There-fore, developers have to take special care not to damage or break their robots legs in such environments. The shoulder joints are especially su?ering from high stress values. This work presents a concept for a robust, modular shoul-der design for bio-inspired hexapods. It was evaluated and is being used for the current version of the walking robot LAURON V.
