Abstract: We content that real-world widespread adoption of multi-legged robots is not due to some magic missing engineering ingredient but due, by and large, to two related factors. The first is that the market must be educated as to the potential benefits of such technology and secondly any missing engineering ingredients need to be market derived and not research specified. After discussing the issue of educating the market we proceed with an example of generating market-oriented technical requirements which specifically result in new controller architectures. We continue this example with two examples of requirements generated by technical analysis, including Systems Theoretic Process Analysis, and so show that whilst the continuation of fundamental research is necessary if multi-legged robots are to find a sustainable set of real-world applications research resources need to be guided into market research and market orientated industrialisation.
