    I plan on running a biped based on the LynxMotion Biped BRAT eventually

    What do we have like 6 months til the next robogames? If I make it in time I'll be running a biped.

    I'd love to bring Little Walker, but I won't worry about putting effort into guns and control until I can get a call that it counts as a "real walker" (it is servo-actuated, it just doesn't have any knees...)

    You can see the evolution of mine here :

    I have since made the femur longer and am currently working on the control code.

    that is a pretty sweet. One thing I wonder about with the biped is falling down durring a match, in standard configuration I can get back back on his feet, but If i mod my arms for weapons, not sure how that will go. I was looking for video earlier of a biped mech getting up from a fall.

    In the 2012 event, the match was paused and bipeds raised when they fell over (don't know if there's a penalty for this.)
    I also saw one of the bipeds make a twisty outwards motion with the legs and manage to right itself, so some of them can do this! Needs at least an extra ankle servo per leg AFAICT.

    Here's my 2011 Biped getting up.


    My 2012 never got that far.

    The current one can get up off of either side, front and back. It only really gets up off it's front, the rest just roll on to the front. When I get my control code working nicely I will start a thread and post video.

    Cheers,

    Some of the teams at Robocup 2012 got a bit more showy in their righting motions, although I'm not really sure many AX-12/18 based bots could do that very easily loaded down with everything needed for MechWarfare. I kinda get the feeling the Premium humanoid could do the backward tumble/flip to right itself if one were to remove the head, but I don't recall ever testing one - maybe during some free time this week.
