Hexapod Crawler Robot


bug

This is the hexapod robot that made from plywood cut using CNC. Each body item was hand milled out from the large stencil, it was really fast and easy. Main body have 8 servos, 6 for the legs, and two for the head pan tilt system.

He used TO-220 transistor nylon isolation mounts for the bearings, and bolts and locknuts at each joints. There are another six servos, one for each leg, to lift the feet. The whole thing is controlled by an Atmel AT90S8515 clocked at 8 Mhz. The code was compiled using WinAVR free GCC GNU-C. He uses a PlayStation controller to help debug the walk cycles, and change parameters as needed. Watch a video after the jump.
