Edog - Mini 3D printed Quadruped Robot ✨

Hi, I'm edog, I'm a robotic project under development.
I will participate to the eurobot cup 2021 in May and will become open source

🦄 My dream is to create a community of eDog makers 🌈

I wish that everyone could build their own robot around the world and share with the community !

To reach this goal, eDog will be opensource as soon the project is completed ! Everything you need will be documented and explained

Please share and subscribe to make it happen 🥳

Challenges / Constraints :

  • 100% 3D printable (without support)✔️
  • Under 300gr weigh✔️
  • Under 100$ budget ✔️
  • Easy to build ✔️

    As explain, edog will participate in the Eurobot cup. 

    To do so, I need to know the robot position in (x, y) on the table. But I can't use embedded lidar or using triangulation due to its small size and its limited capacity to carry heavy components. 

    So What I will attempt to do is using a beacon with a camera and estimate the position giving a video flux.

    This beacon is composed with an NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2gb board, a TPLink Nano Router, a 7inch touchscreen and a DC converter to 5v and 5A. that allow to used 3s to 6s lipo to power up the sytem.

    Here an exemple of the team ARIG Robotique (more infos here)

    Step #1: original video

    Step #2: Optical distortion usgin OpenCv in python

    Step #3: projection in an orthonormal coordinate system

    All the stl files will be drop after the French Eurobot cup, the 1st June 2021.

    here you can see all the part involves, Everything has been design for an easy build and easy printed without support needed.

    Only 4 * M3 screw are needed for the frame ! 🔩
    It makes edog very simple to build, so everyone can build his own easely

    All legs are controlled by an inverse kinematics algorithm. ROS2 will be implement soon !
