Thread: Terrain Adaptation Hexapod

  1. Smile Terrain Adaptation Hexapod

    Hi all,
    I have finally got around to spending more time on terrain adaptation using my p.Brain-DS engine and the largest of my hexapods to date - B.F.Hexapod (V5).

    As some of you may know I have dabbled with terrain adaptation before back in 2003 with my V4 hexapod, however, I was limited by having the locomotion engine off-board. With these new tests using the on-board p.Brain-DS many of the problems were solved, along with a new contact sensor design I intend on using on larger hexapods. More info can be found on my site here: micromagic systems - B.F. Hexapod (V5)

    Terrain test videos showing various gaits can be found here:

    Terrain Test 1
    Terrain Test 2
    Terrain Test 3
    Terrain Test 4

    Don't ask me why the video's all start grey.. something to do with youtube conversion, as they were all fine before I sent them!?

    Matt, that's pretty amazing. I want to try and get my biped MicroRaptor to that level of capability this summer...

    Wow, awesome. Do you think you could post some closeup shots of a foot? That's a design feature that most legged robots are seriously lacking in.

    That is pretty damn incredible Matt! I'm with Dave; could you post a closeup of those sexy feet?

    I got the pic below off your site, but it's a bit fuzzy and I'd like to see all three angles:

    At some point I will get round to taking some better pictures of the feet, and let you know.

    Hi Dave, took me a while to find the details:
