Hi All,

I wanted to share the results of a project built with hardware from the Trossen, a high speed snake robot:

R2G2: Robot with Rectilinear Gait for Ground Operations


This robot uses exaggerated rectilinear gait to move through cluttered spaces. The new gait enables it to overcome limitations of slow speeds associated with the body undulation based locomotion.

It is composed of:

Arduino Mega Microcontroller
10 Hitec HS-7940TH Servomotors
8 Hitec HS-7950TH Servomotors

Looks cool. May be for this robot it will be possible to use idea with flexible colored electronic paper (e-ink) which will serve as skin for this robot (under transparent plastic cover instead of non-transparent black) and allow to draw on it's skin current envieronment patterns catched with camera.
