View Full Version : [Question(s)] Lynxmotion 209 algorithm

01-12-2016, 02:57 PM

I recently assembled a 12-servo lynx 209 and need it to start to walk by programming.
What algorithm(s) do I need to keep it balanced and what prerequisite maths knowledge do I need to obtain to start with. I want to learn from the basics that relevant to my project. Do I need to know the rotation Matrix and IK ?

My appreciation in advance.

FYI - Lynxmotion was purchased by Robotshop over 3 years ago, at that time, the old Lynxmotion forums were merged into Robotshops.
If you have not done so, you might try searching their forums (http://www.robotshop.com/forum/index.php)

I personally have not done anything with either the Scout or the 209, but I believe that some of the people who did so, may have started off with the old Biped Brat code base, which has/had simple hard coded sequences for step forward, back, turn left, turn right... You might take a look in their forums and potentially ask some questions there, to see if you can get some hints and maybe some code bases.

Good Luck
