    Dragoon - RX-64 Quadruped

    Hey guys,

    Figured I'd share some of my more recent work; Dragoon. This is an RX-64 based quad using an arbotiX and the new & upcoming RX-Bridge. Walking gait is still needing tweaking, the COG shift from a bot this large being propelled forward is causing the back legs to drift, so I'm still tweaking the NUKE code to correct for this, I'll post more as I make progress. Note, in the video I have the servos toned down considerably, it can move about 4x faster from what I've seen so far.





    Updated vid, faster!

    WOW! I didn't know the Arbotix was supporting RX-64's!

    That would be the new RX-Bridge at work.

    As a testament to just how awesome lnxfergy's ArbotiX platform and software (PyPose/NUKE) is, here's an update video after some more tweaks:



    Big improvement! I actually had it going about 50% faster than this, but it wasn't entirely stable. The unthinkable almost happened; a quad nearly fell over.

    Hi,

    Great work with the quad Tyberius!
    I love the last video, 5 stars!
    May I ask why you are using wheels on the feet?

    They're not functioning as wheels (they don't spin), it was just an easy way to make a rubber 'foot' given the design of the tibia.

    Ok that explains it!

    Would love to see a hex based RX-64 too . A small body with those large leg on a hex would be awesome.
