I've been designing and experimenting with mechanical systems for legs for a robot, my goals are:
- Walk as smooth as possible. So there must be a flat side if you'd plot the foot of the leg.
- As simple as possible. As few pieces as possible, and preferably no "sliding" points, only normal pivoting points. (whats the word I'm searching for here? :p)
- Use only 1 motor. No servo's ... as simple as possible
I was wondering if you know designs that do this, or come close to it? Any help is welcome!
Or some tips and tricks?
btw, I already know the Theo Janssen desing (i fyou don't know what it is, youtube it! interesting)
