The Spring Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) gait model can be characterised with various parameters, including spring stiffness, mass of the robot, touchdown angle and leg length. Tuning the parameters can be time consuming and Bayesian Optimisation provides an efficient way for finding the optimal gait parameters.
The user can set the initial conditions of the system and Bayesian optimisation finds the optimal spring stiffness and touchdown angles for the given initial conditions.
Depending on the initial conditions, Bayesian optimisation can find different gait patterns, including walking, running and skipping gait pattern.

I want to test your script for the SLIP model, but I have some questions about how to do it.
In the script SLIP_model.m, in the inputs variables, what should I insert?
parameters: I have no idea.
profile: walking, skipping, running?
time: seconds of the simulation
Thank you very much!
