The machine (I’m really bad to come up with good names) is an AX-12 based Phoenix hexapod. http://evilmachina.com/the-machine.aspx
First step is to get the hexapod to move using some type of external input devise, keyboard or game pad.
Second step is to add sensors to the robot.
Third step is to make it automated.
This project is more about the software then the hardware. If I’m doing it right it should be fairly easy to replace the AX-12 with regular servos and/or a different setup.
OS: Windows XP
Language: C# 3.0
Lynxmotion Phoenix kit
18 AX-12+ Servos from a Bioloid kit
"USB Bus Interface" from Huv Robotics
I'm probably going to use a VIA EPIA PX 10000 Pico-ITX as the brain, I currently using my desktop computer.
