I have been browsing your interesting site for the purpose of research & development.
I have been given a brief of the following:
Research, Design and Simulation of Quad-pedal Robot
The typical generic requirements of a standard electrical system to be researched, designed and simulated are as follows:
1. To enable the quad pedal robot to detect light source and move towards the source.
2. To enable the quad medal robot to walk towards the light source
3. To simulate the open-loop system in respect of the robot moving under its own power and walking towards the light source
The typical generic requirements of an advanced system are as follows:
1. Simple hard-wired control of the robot to create a closed loop system, enabling the robot to walk towards the light source
2. A simple controller e.g. P, PD, (classical control)
3. A simulation of the closed-loop system
Do you think a BEAM robot would be best suited to this criteria? I am an amatuer on this topic, but from what I have read from your site and topics on the web , it seems to be the fact I keep returning to this.
At the present time I am trying to concentrate on the electronic aspect of the design.
If possible, could someone give me some pointers/advice on circuit design and can you recommend any books/literature/reference aids that will help me with my investigation?
Any information would be greatly apprecciated
Many thanks in advance
