Thanks for the great info and the link! That is really a great bot you have there- I love the chassis construction and suspension system! I see that you have, in places, shored up the poly with aluminum. It is very similar to what I had in mind. I've got a couple of questions:*What thickness aluminum are you using?*Do you notice much flex in the chassis?
Woah, thats a lot of servos *gazes onto the servos and starts drooling*did you get them somewhere for cheap?
So... Many servos...Are you cutting the body or getting someone else to do it?
You should be OK with just a pan servo for the camera. And perhaps you can mount it at an angle, since the camera sees a cone and you don't really need to see too close to it's front. If you need to see closer, just lower the front of the robot (using the legs) and lift the back of the robot or vice-versa if you need to see higher. A Sharp IR ranger should be mounted parallel with the floor, but a sonar sensor at a slight angle, or it will pick up the carpet edge as an object at a certain distance.
lol man is that melted polycarbonate on the grinding stone
It always makes this stuff more fun if you have the correct tools\materials, so you can just power through the construction. It gives you a since of pride when you finish.just a side note, I wish I had a table saw and what seems to be a drill press. Would make life easier.
yes, hexapods can be quite pricey.look at all of those servos!
