    Re: EX-106+/RX-64 Humanoid Robot: Giger

    ^ Thanks much and welcome to the forum!

    Tonight I finally flipped the switch and tested out my code modifications. Luckily he did not twist into a ball of servo smoke. So far all seems good; I'm tweaking the zero position using the new offset and Giger is standing under his own power.

    Since the last post, I've re-assigned my servo IDs to more closely match Darwin, made some modifications to the chest, and have everything for the most part wired up.

    Nice work on Giger Ty - no surprise there! It seems to me that PLM's have gone to the wayside with bipeds - if that's so any comments on why that's case? When I do build my biped I was planning on implementing a PLM design.

    Regards

    @ Stobs...Not all of us have abandoned the PLM based Biped...though we probably wish we would...some would argue that the pros...are outweighed by the cons... (long legs,,,servos fighting each other if you don't change the compliance...did I mention the long legs?)

    For me it comes down to just not having enough time for all my projects. I moved away from PLM with Giger because I couldn't make it anywhere near the size I wanted; it'd have been 1m tall and I want this robot to be mostly for Mech Warfare. I also wanted dynamic balancing, which isn't really easy with PLM. I see it best used for super lightweight kung-fu fighters, or very heavy duty full size humanoids. Giger sits in the middle of that.

    I planned on still working on my RX-28 PLM bot, but it gathered dust for nearly a year so I sold it at cost in hopes that someone else would take advantage of it.

    I still have several sets of RX-28 PLM brackets, and plan on revisiting the project at some point in the future.

    Hi Andrew, its so good to see your projects, i may not be on here a lot right now but i always come on to see what you are doing :-) good work. Love it.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    Thanks for the replies darkback2, Ty, very much appreciated. I was hoping to explore some joint configurations (although I'm thinking what I had in mind for the ankle would be a bit much), so it's nice to hear that they're still viable for MW. Have to say though Ty, that if you rethought it's implementation it should give me pause in considering that path - then again, if all I wanted to do was play follow the leader I picked the wrong hobby!

    Hello

    im an Egyptian Engineering student and i really admire your work.so I wanted to ask you some questions about this project

    what is the robot capable of ? ( running-climbing ... etc )

    i really want to build one like it for educational purposes would you assist me with all available data on this project (Mechanical designs-Electrical designs) ?


    i know im asking for alot of your hard work without offering any benefit to you but i am just a 2nd year communication engineering student who is just fond of this stuff
