The most appropriate application of walking machines is locomotion over difficult terrain. It demands an appropriate control system. Some designers try to build control systems providing locomotion of the vehicle in automatic mode using some wave gaits [2,3]. This approach presumes that information on the terrain is delivered by some visual or force sensors.
