Quadrupedal Walking Robot
This is a picture of a quadrupedal walking robot I built a couple summers ago. Its purpose was to go over simple obstacles and hopefully climb stairs. However, because it was a power hog and the servos did not have a good torque rating it needed to be tethered to a power supply. Once I realized that it would cost me several hundred dollars worth of high quality servos and rechargeable batteries to have it perform as desired the project was dropped. The one video I have of it walking was taken before the knee joints were completely added. Later I realized that the knee joints could not bear the weight of the bot and so they were never fully implemented. The link below is for the video of the bot.
