This robot allows the sensors to detect the positioning tape and positions a moving direction (Lx direction) of the toes, a direction (Ly direction) orthogonally crossing with the moving direction, and inclination (θ direction) to the moving direction based on the position detecting signals. The sensors may be attached to the inside surfaces of the both toes, may be attached to the outside surface and the inside surface of one toe, may be attached to outside surface and inside surface of the both toes, and may be attached to the rear surfaces of the toes.
