Received 10 January 1992

For the first time a possibility of chaotic regime for a robotic equation is investigated, using equation for a model of robot with one degree of freedom with viscous and dry friction and hard-spring rigidity. The transient motion was not excluded in this investigation. A chaotic regime is discovered in a particular scan, with enhanced rigidity, for the critical length parameter Lc which exceeds the upper limit of L in the standard parameter range by a factor of 50. In the chaotic regime a pronounced period three window is found.
