iHexi - The iPhone controlled Hexapod
« on: February 23, 2010, 01:34:16 PM »
Hi Guys,

Im new to the forum (which is brill by the way) and I would like to
introduce my Hexapod...   Heximotional



This started  as  a  final year  project  at  Uni to  create a control
algorithm for a  3DOF Hexapod, which included Forward kinematics
(6DOF  or  body  orientation,  3DOF for  locomotion)  and  Inverse
kinematics (determine  each legs  orientation).  Since finishing the
project I have been writing an App for  the iPhone  or iPod  Touch
capable of not only being the controller interface for  the user but
also able to run the control algorithm.  To my knowledge making it
the first robot to use an iPhone as its brain. Here is the first video

Before I had the iPhone App working  the control algorithm ran on
my laptop,  which made  it  possible to use  a  PlayStation Sixaxis
controller

And Briefly it became a Quadruped...

Hi all,

I have just finished writing a couple of Android apps that allow computer-less
control of the hexapod. Either Controlled directly over bluetooth from an Android
device or by using the Android device to convert the iPhones Wifi signal to bluetooth.

@ 3d printer

How??? do u have connections to a cooperation that has one? or do u actually own one??
arn't they like $10,000 +?

I evny u so much

@ the hexipod

why didn't you keep it as a quadropod? Stability issues?
also how did u develop your own app? did you pay for the software that apple provides for making apps?


now something not a question I admire your precision on the robot parts and legs. I'm sure they work very well.

wow lots of ? marks...

Very nice, I love the fluidity of it all, especially the camera.
