Another great project from Radomir Dopieralski, “Tote is a four-legged, spider-like robot designed as a cheap and simple base for experiments with walking robots. It’s easy to make, but very easy to modify and extend.”
The brain of the bot is an Arduino Pro Mini, using minimal additional components, but which can be easily extended upon with recommended optional components. Radomir takes the time to explain the various gaits of quadrupeds, the math involved, and even acknowledge design ‘goals and contraints.’ I love documentation of projects like this.
And the coolest part has to be when he switches the bot on, and it stands itself up on all four legs and begins crawling – watch the video below!
