Abstract The paper presents the simulation and modeling of gait on a system using two prototype compact Stewart platforms. Control issues raised by the reduced size of the robots and hence their lower power output are discussed. The flexible haptic material concept is introduced and used to realistically model heterogeneous haptic surfaces simulating the virtual ground. An algorithm for virtual foot/virtual surface contact modeling and transforming the platform motion into walking in VEs is also presented.
