We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Finally I have finished this 1 year project.
what I came up with is a lightweight greyhound that you can control with an arduino and 8 servo's
I bet there are better programmers out there that can make it walk even better and smoother.
Also included is a basic program to get you going.
The Greyhound Programming stand
Let me know If you have made a good program.
than I can put it for download on this page with YOUR name on it.
Things you need:
Download: Assembly The Greyhound.PDF
Assemble the compleet left side.
Assemble the right side just like the left side accept for the the following parts:
Pin 1 Front Right Upperleg
Pin 2 Front Right Lowerleg
Pin 3 Front Left Upperleg
Pin 4 Front Left Lowerleg
Pin 5 Back Right Upperleg
Pin 6 Back Right Lowerleg
Pin 7 Back Left Upperleg
Pin 8 Back Left Lowerleg
to use the small programs I have written download the STAND.INO (For software calibration,this is the natural standing position.)
And the WALK4.INO (For letting it walk, also in this program you need to fill in the natural stand you figured out in the STAND program.
If you found a mistake please let me know.
I would love to see some programs and pictures of what you did.
