This is my first valid attemp at creating a walking robot.
The biped uses the same software as I use on Evo except that it now has to control a walking gait for Forward, Right and Left.
It uses 4 MG995 servos for the legs and one Parallax servo for the cam.
The servo controller is the Veyron.
It is powered by one 3.7v 2200 LiPo cell.
It uses the Logitech C170 WebCam for its vision.
It runs on Windows 8.1 that is on a 8" off brand tablet.
Work is continuing to progress on the biped, not much has changed in the structure of the bot.
What has changed is the software.
The walk cycle has become more efficient to save battery power, previously when the bot would come to a stop the servos where still holding position which is consuming power. Now when the bot comes to a stop the servos no longer hold position so power is removed from the servos.
The moves used to turn right and left have also changed to a longer stride to make the turn to right or left happen quicker. Before it would take 6 strides to make a left or right turn, now it only takes 4.
Features have been added to the software to allow for controlling the bot via voice commands. By saying stop the bot will stop and roaming is turned off, also the video feed can be turned of via voice.
I added the ability for the bot to recognize colors, if you say color it will then tell you "I see the color (and the color)"
Here is a updated image of the software. New video to come soon.
After lots of work and hours of frustration I was able to make this little bot perform quite well.
Now its time to move on to more servos and a better walking gait.
While this bot is still in tact I have removed the servo control board and the cam to repurpose them into a better model.
Forward we march onto a better design.
