Arduped Biped Robot

Arduped Biped Robot by DJUltis Mar 20, 2012

Description

After seeing a couple really cool examples of "four degrees of freedom" biped out there, I decided that I would make some cool feet and make the robots a bit more creature-like. Current ideas for cool feet are beasty feet, mech-like feet, rock feet.. you know.



The preceding examples of this type of robot used the pcb as the mounting point for the servos, and I've made a generic baseplate with room for a mini breadboard or your own preferred platform. I've also added a "neck" servo for looking around and ultrasonic sensor for sight. I plan to make a housing and more creature feet for this as there is much potential for customization.

The code I'm using is a derivation of the functions and primitives written for uBipedino (tm) by user Ro-Bot-X on the Let's Make Robots site. It is the part of the robot that is in progress, as I am working to fine tune the ultrasonics.

The link to Ro-bot-X's wonderful creation is here: letsmakerobots.com/node/30394

Hi, Yes, I have handmadecircuits. Will fix links soon once Arduped v2 is up and rolling. I've made a new site at citizenscientificworkshop.com that will host my stuff in the future.

Great design!
Dunno if it's related to you, but handmadecircuits.com just shows an index?

thanks!!

Instructions

Print out the plastic pieces and bolt on the servos. I used foam tape to stick the feet on. I drilled out the holes on the servo horns a bit and used 2/56 x 5/16"L hardware to bolt everything on. For electronics I used an Arduino Nano, but there are many examples of PIC biped out on the nets too.

thanks

Hi! As in upload just the left or right foot in their own file? "A single foot" ?

Hi

Your robot is lovely. I am also making a robot.
What plastic did you use (ABS/PLA)
&
amp; what printer?
