Love it! That's just excellent, love the way it moves!
Could you give a bit of a description on how it works? e.g. what sensors do you use? How mucah of it's motion is autonomous?
Thanks richiereynolds...It is fully autonomous !
... it makes use of Infrared sensor to sense any blockage ahead (25 cm), if it does, it stops and identifies if the obstruction:
1) has a gap underneath (Task 1)
2) is a slope (Task 2)
3) is a sudden height (Task 3)
it does that using IR sensor which can orientate up and down, it measures distances to identify if it is Task 1, 2 or 3.
And, the whole time it is walking, not only it checks for blockage ahead, but it keeps on checking if the light-sensors (that are located on its feet) senses a 'larger' distance (black + light-ON) when the foot is down ! [it checks for light-sensor value only
when each time the foot is down] - if it senses larger distance, that means the surface is Irregular ! (Task 4) - it steps backwards in order to Transform.
