Title: Quadruped robot - Quadbot17
Post by: m3atsauc3 on May 10, 2018, 01:33:16 PM
Hi all,

This is my first post here!
I'd like to share some videos of a robot I have been working on for the past year:

Thanks! It's actually mostly blue, it might not show well in the video.

The brain is currently the PC for testing, but the Raspberry Pi is onboard and can run the same code. It will probably stay like this until I need a more powerful one to run a 3D sensor (maybe like this: https://www.stemmer-imaging.co.uk/en/products/series/intel-realsense-d400/).

The actuators/sensors are controlled by an OpenCM, which is basically a Arduino-based board (with expansion) from Robotis, with libraries and hardware to support a range of their motors.
