This paper descibes the design of a robot primate using pneumatic Muscle Actuators (pMA). The design of the robot follows a biomimetic approach and the primate chosen as inspiration was the Gorilla. The paper discusses a recently completed project which concerned the design of a robot dog and how this work has influenced the design of the robot primate.
