BIG walkers

So after looking at HUNDREDS of robot projects here and with maybe 1/6 of them being "walkers," I still can't find an example of one that looks like it could climb an average set of stairs in a North American home.  Aside from the programming and engineering challenges associated with manipulating it into a narrow stairway and levelling, it seems like having a robot that could climb stairs would be an important task for it to be useful.

Different buttons for different loops, building wired control

Hi everyone.
Im new into this arduino programing and i totaly love it!
Im building a realy simple 3 servo hexapod walker. All the building is completed and im able to program it to do different thing for example walk forward, or turn.

The challenge is very simple, and can be build with what ever technology you have at hand Objective: build a walker robot that can pull an object at least 4 times … Read more

Robots With Legs; How to Walk or Run

Does your robot walk like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTHI8o5ZOFk&feature=related Notice the heavy jarring to the machine and to the inhabitants inside. This jarring is not good for the machine, especially at the joints and may eventually break  something.

An evolving 2 DOF hexapod - build log

Hello all.

 

I'm going to use this blog as much as a lab book for myself and my partner as I am for fascinating and entertaining you guys, so if it rambles at time, I apologise in advance.

 

The basic premise of this build is to allow a platform that can be hacked apart and upgraded as needed - it's for learning, rather than a finished product. 

 

All my projects & progress are available at marginallyclever.com. This is a Stewart platform.  While it is very similar to a delta robot (see my other … Read more

The rookie robot builder wannabe has drawings and a parts list!

Second blog on my first build, with some final things.
Well, final, is a drawing ever final until you've actually cut the parts and fixed them together?

Guess not, but we'll see about that later.

The first brainwaves of a rookie robot builder wannabee

So, let me start by saying that I really like LMR already.
For a couple of months now I've been wanting to start playing with robotics, micro controllers and pick up electronics again.
I did some electronics back in school and as a hobby but I didn't have time.

So, a while back I bought an Arduino Uno to start playing with uC's and electronics, drove my girlfriend mad with talks and showing designs I made, which where all not feasible or would be way too expensive to even think about.

Now you will probably think, stop rambling and start talking robots! And I will!
