74AC14 microcore ( L293D driver )
this is a cool tutorial on microcore walkers
Wow! I said when I saw that! Best quadrapod of it's kind that I have ever seen!
Why don't ya fill out the entire scheme on the "submit robot"? You can edit it and give us some more :)
And as said; Photos!! I'd like to understand how this thing is doing what it is!
AH! I get it!?!
Because of the angle, the overall "v-shape", the legs automatically lifts when they should! Very cool!
So it is just 2 motors with legs, but the way they are placed in angle to each other makes the legs move up from the ground when moving forward!!
you are right....
the dynamic (unstable) equilibrium is the key that make this bot walk
the trick is the correct motor angle , leg geometry and weight balance...
those parameter have to be tuned so the body tend to fall left and right at every step with the right timing
the critical aspect with this sort of walker is weight/power ratio -> too weight and it easily become a sitting duck...
infact it works for few minutes because low energy 9v battery
