robotic knee movement
« on: June 16, 2012, 10:25:45 PM »
Hey guys. I'm kinda new here. I'm a 20 year old 5th year electronics engineering student here in the Phils and I'm kinda having problems with our design project. Our topic is about robotics, basically, mimicking or simulating human movement (hand movement, arm, etc), then we find an application for it, not to mention any improvement for current researches regarding that. 

I'm kinda having trouble in finding myself an application and problem regarding knee movement (only the knee, not including ankle movement). Could you help me out on this? 

I'm planning to use a PIC16f877a microcontroller and I'm not really sure what motor to use, a stepper motor or a servo motor? 

Thanks for your reply guys. I'd really appreciate it. Post your replies here, I badly need it. This is taking my time away from my girlfriend, family, band, and social life. 

PS: Sorry for the bad English, and no, not all Asians are geniuses.       
Music is really my thing. But I am haunted by my fantasies of seeing robots rock out - A literal metal band.

Maybe you could make a walking robot that climbs stairs? You could make the stairs long and shallow so the project would be less difficult. Personally, I would go with a micro servo, it's cheap and really easy to use.
