This paper demonstrates the development of a domain specific language for a bionic-oriented six legged walk-ing robot. It shows how the complex application domain of robotics can be simplified to enable unskilled users to model motion sequences for a given moveable robot, by keeping the option for sophisticated movements. For the development of the language the Coco/R parser generator was used. To further simplify the workflow, additionally a development environment was implemented based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform and the Xtext framework.
