    Project - JES01

    Project Name: JES01 (will change later)
    Project description: Research into improvements of supporting legs for bi-ped and quad-ped robotics
    Description: PART 1: Using a combination of pressure sensors, servos, accelerometers and logic in processing, improve upon designs of robotic legs and feet, based upon common elements found in nature. The goal of part 1 is to have a leg system that can independently sustain itself upright and withstand various forces applied against it.
    Using mostly Phidgets interfaces and Java for the bulk of the programming.
    Notes: looking to soon create a blog do discuss and detail the progress and findings
    Wish me luck!
    So far, here's the hardware (some if it just came in yesterday!)

    Sounds pretty cool Eric! Do you care to elaborate a bit on how you plan on accomplishing this?

    Using a hair clip, some chewing gum and a 9-volt battery!
    The details will be released as I run the first set of trials. Even if an idea fails, I find it can be quite useful to a research community to learn from failed attempts. As for this project, I wanted people to know what I am working on. Each day more ideas come flooding in on how to address various problems. Now I need to buy a few more pieces of hardware I need for the first trial. The software has started. This will most likely end up being a 1-2 year project (if things go well)
    Details and blogs to follow in the coming weeks and months.
    (perhaps a bi-weekly update at min.)
