The video shows the Intelligent Trial and Error Algorithm in action for two different damage conditions: a leg that has lost power and a broken leg. Initially, when the robot is undamaged, a hand-designed, classic tripod gait, performs well. Once damage occurs, however, this reference gait no longer works. The Intelligent Trial and Error Algorithm is initiated and quickly finds fast, compensatory behaviors for both damage conditions.
