Is it possible to walk with only one servo?
August 5, 2009
i will make my start here robot, but while i wait for the weels/ ir sensor and motors, i only have a servo, the picaxe board and chip, and a few pieces of wire and metal.
do you think it is possible to make a servo walk/crawl with just this?
In the first video i made it walk, but it only works on top of paper... it has some "claw" shaped ends in the metal legs so it kind of works... :p
i made a second try and also recorded a video... this one has cardboard legs with rubber "feet" a piece or metal wire under the servo to make it slip and balance a little bit. This one can move in more surfaces than the first version... it works reasonably well in paper, wood and glass
