The invention discloses a novel six-foot robot, and belongs to the field of bionic robots. The novel six-foot robot solves the problems that an existing six-foot robot is poor in environment sensing ability, and has no ability to sense self states, and the integration degree is not high. The novel six-foot robot comprises a body, mechanical legs, a sensing system and a control system, wherein each mechanical leg comprises connecting elements, a body-coxa joint, a coxa beam, a coxa-femur joint, a femur beam, a femur-tibia joint and a tibia beam which are sequentially connected. The control system comprises a computer terminal, a main control board, single-leg control modules, joint drivers and a controller area network (CAN) bus, wherein the computer terminal and the main control board are connected through the Ethernet, the number of the single-leg control modules is six, the single-leg control modules and the joint drivers are arranged in the body, the main control board is connected with the single-leg control modules through the CAN bus, and the joint drivers on six mechanical legs are connected with the CAN bus. The novel six-foot robot is used for transportation, detection and extreme environment work and the like.
