The multi-leg system concept for aerial vehicles proposed here is a novel alternative to conventional landing gear and realizes adaptation to undulating terrain, shock absorption, ground-surface gripping, and chassis support after landing. The sections that follow discuss multi-leg system concept, mechanical shock absorption design, simulation, and experimental results.
