I want to build a walking bipedal robot which would walk the most naturally possible, which means like a human would. The exercise is to stray far from Asimo (and countless others), which walks and run with its knees bent, something that exasperates me no end. What I want to achieve (my dream goal) is a robot that walks like the one from Dr. Guero (Google it).
Since I'm on a budget, I went for the inexpensive Dynamixel XL-320 and Opencm 9.04. I also got a Raspberry PI as I wanted a more powerful platform to do the data processing.
The pictures are from an older prototype.
The 3d model was made with Tinkercad. All the plastic parts are 3D printed on my Tevo Tarantula.
I will update this page when I have completed the last pieces of the hips, which I have completely redesigned.
I finally got sick of battling with the XL-320, OpenCM and Pixl boards. It was either not working under Linux or not working with more than 6 servos.
So, I looked up for something else and after a while, my choice stopped on the LewanSoul servos. So far, they meet my expectations. I have 1 leg done (minus the foot, which requires a redesign) and I'm waiting for the next batch of servos to come at my door.
Stay tuned, as I will show up where I'm at when the second leg (and hips) is done!
