4P - Quadruped prototype
4P is a small quadruped robot designed to teach more complex mobility functions with the use of inverse kinematics and stabilization algorithms.
The concept behind 4P is that it has to be build with the resource of a CNC and some other basic tools and be cheap enough to be used as a disposable platform for teaching and learning. Based on the original design we arrived at the following specifications:
- 3mm Acrylic parts
- 12 mini servos for 3DOF per leg
- small arduino based board
- light weight battery (lithium or equivalent)
- RF communication for debug and basic sensor feedback
It is still at a very early design stage, since we are working on another major project, but we are happy with our development so far to share it with the community.
