Simple three-servo hexapod walker using the Pololu Micro Maestro
This is a simple three-servo hexapod robot using the Pololu Micro Maestro as a controller. The Micro Maestro allows allows me to sequence gaits and integrate sensor readings for obstacle avoidance.
I have posted complete build instructions and a video that I hope people will take a look at. Anyone who has decent soldering skills should be able to build this robot in an afternoon or so, and I think that there are a lot of possible variations on the design. Below I have posted some pictures taken from the build instructions to illustrate the steps in building the robot:
