This is a hexapod robot powered by 18 RC servomotors. The
degree of freedom of each leg is 3. I built this robot to
study the control software for 6 legged locomotion.
This robot can walk toward every direction, but the maximum speed of progress depends on the direction. This robot is equipped with radio control transmitter and can accept control by radio. In develop configuration, this robot is connected to PC's parallel port and control from PC with umbilical cable.
