Introduction Project Overview
Team Biped will produce a two legged 6th generation toy biped robot that will replace the traditionally used servos with a dc motor and achieve static walking. By utilizing the 3Dot Board, the robot will participate in the end of semester, December 14th, 2016, game called: Save the Human.
Biped shall compete, alongside other toys such as Goliath and Velociraptors, in an end of semester approximately hour long game: Save The Human. Biped should successfully walk, using Goliath’s live video feed as the field of view, from the opposite end of the room to the finish area without coming into contact with a Velociraptor. The Biped will maneuver through multiple obstacles by turning through walls, sensing color pads, and stepping through uneven terrain placed on top of Linoleum floors.
A key component of our design is replacing the ankles with servos. The ankle servo eliminates having to use two dc motors to accomplish a pivot turn. The placement of the servos provides a strategic way to balance on on foot and then turn the entire body to face the desired direction.
