Walker and dancer DIY biped robot, derivative design from Zowi which is based on BOB the original biped robot that uses only 4 servos to walk and move. Made the following improvements:
Able to have an Arduino UNO board (or smaller) inside the robot head.
3 LEDs for a simple mouth.
Rounded top head.
Legs thickness increased and reinforced rounds.
Rounded feet top.
Chassis - base simplified.
Easy to reprogram or energize having the connectors in the back.
Arduino UNO or compatible, i use a DFRduino R3
Nano breadboard or weld all cables
Futaba servo S3003 x4
HC-SR04 Ultrasound sensor
Nuts M3 x20
Screws M3x12 x20
Powerbank (optional) or just use the usb for power the Arduino board.
Check the schematic picture for connection
The HC-SR04 Ultrasound sensor is not connected in the schematic; trig for pin 8 and echo for pin 9)
For the programming:
Download & Install Arduino IDE: https://www.arduino.cc/
Copy Oscillator libraries to C:\Users\user\Documents\Arduino\libraries (or wherever your library folder is installed):
Finally open & upload OTTO_smooth_criminal.ino code to your Arduino Nano for dancing Otto.
