Having a robot autonomously determine the best walking gait based on failures / successes is incredibly interesting. Some sort of feedback is needed though. 

Four mechanical linkages that are designed to move like legs has nothing to do with autonomous behaviour, because if that was true then every bump and go car (or robot) and other toys could be seen as autonomous which is nonsense of course.

As for controlling the voltage etc.: search for BEAM robotics. I loved it, but nowadays microcontrollers are so cheap and easy to program that analogue robots faded into obscurity.
