    Currently robot designers are ever more inspired by nature to develop and design legged robots to mimic the walking style of insects over uneven and rough surfaces. In this work, walking behavior and method of a kind of spider Araneus diadematus are investigated. Image processing techniques are used to obtain kinematic parameters of the spider’s legs. The positions of defined points on the spider’s legs were recorded in terms of time. After extracting the necessary data, a linkage mechanism of the legs was designed.
