Hi im building a large humanoid using wck servos at the moment. 26 servos all up. I have just been working on the mechanical side of things for the last 3 months but now i have to start looking at the controlling side.
I have few questions for you guys. The biped is 680mm high and weighs only 1.5kg (minus controller, gyros battery etc)
I have a robobuilder controller box. Can i have a gyro and pressure sensor input?
Do pressure sensors on the feet actually work? Or do i need a 6 axis sensor in the ankle?
Are pressure sensors really need if you have a gyro with accelerometers?
What gyro/accelerometers work the best? What is the CH Robotics - IMU 6 DOF Board like? It has 3 gyros 3 accelerometers.
I would like the robot to be completely wireless. So i don’t want the controller on the robot. Are there boards that would be able to drive 26 serial servos, have gyro pressure sensor inputs and be wireless (Bluetooth or xbee or something)?
Would there be any advantage to having gyroscopes in the feet for positioning?
I have no idea how i am going to program this. It is a huge task. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Heres a photo a one of the older designs. Im not able to show you the final one.
