Find me Biped Designs!
« on: October 18, 2006, 07:19:40 AM »
Ok, I have made the decision to go to Japan and compete in the Robo-one competition for either '07 or '08, depending on when it is and my schedule.

So I want to make my first biped, for real this time and not keep quiting when it looks too hard/expensive . . .

I figure it would be nice to have a bunch of designs from various other servo driven bipeds to draw ideas off of.

So if anyone finds good specs, or closeup images where you can make out the mechanics/electronics of a robo-one like biped, please post!

To start off, I am posting the robonova specs:
http://www.hitecrobotics.com/robonova/specs.htm
Unfortunately those images are a little low on resolution . . . anyone have access to better closeups, or even the assembly manual for it?

Well, dunno about designs but I found the actual rules for Robo-One posted here. They're called unofficial because they were independently translated from the official japanese rules. That site also has some info on various custom RO 'bots.

Does it have to be humanoid? There was a great raptor style dinosaur design. I think it was made at MIT. I will try to find it again.

Here it is.. The robots name is Troody. It's really ccreepy watching it run. You've probably seen this before though.

robot magazine has a robo-one article with many closeup pics . . .
http://www.botmag.com/articles/robo_one_ten.shtml

this is an interesting article on the servos most common to robo-one builders:

and this is where you can buy the servos, assuming you can read japanese:

That KRS-4014S servo sells for $170!! Has a hell of a torque though...

Today I was looking for dates of the Robo-One in 2007 and 2008, neither I could find . . . Anyone know?

Anyway, I found something else worth looking at if your interested in biped robots.

Two web link lists of many of the competitors websites!
http://masayuki.style.coocan.jp/hp/robowiki/?0N0-ONE%20GP%202006
http://a.hatena.ne.jp/robot/image

Since I cant speak japanese, Im relying on pics like these . . .

let the 'wtf am i clicking on?' click fest begin!  :P

or babelfish it if your less lazy than me . . .

I'd say robonova sucks. That one that turns into a spider and does stuff............that's the stuff right there.

From the English translation of the Japanese web page, it looks like the deadline to register for the 2007 Robo-One event is Jan 20. The event will be held on Jan 27 and 28 - and some of the times of various events were still in a state of flux as of Dec 21. It doesn't appear that they have set a date for the 2008 event yet - but I would guess that it's very likely to take place early next year.
