One of the most important events for hopping robot is lift-off; the end of thrusting phase, since hopping motion often comes to be unstable at lift-off. Therefore, we focus on thrusting phase. In this research, we propose a new controller, which is combined two controllers. We also propose a trajectory planning so that a hopping robot follows command value of vertical velocity. The effectiveness of the proposed methods are confirmed by simulation and experiment.
