Hi! This is my newest creation, the Nofitolem. It started out to be a human-like biped, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to keep in balance. Another problem is also the fact, that the joints (knees, junction leg-body) aren't sturdy, which means that they kind of move about. I'm quite satisfied with the walking mechanism, although it has a major problem. The movement of one leg is contolled by one motor, so it provides the bending of the knee, and the movement of the leg. This mechanism imitates our way of walking, when the leg is lifted the knee is bent, the only problem is when lowering the leg the knee bends in the other direction, which decreases majorly the length of a step (=> the robot hardly walks :S )
On the body part, two touch sensors are visible, to detect when one leg has reached the end of a step, then invert the direction of the motor.
Here are some images and two videos to help visualize my robot, and if you have any ideas, find out a way how to finish/improve my design, then feel free to use/alter it. I have only one demand, if you do this, please give proper credit. :)
Want some info about to build a biped see my MOC: LEGO mindstorms.
It will help ya. But the wrongs i see now is: 1. The feets is way to small. 2. It need to be shorter to keep the balance 3. Use turntables as a rotating leg for turning right/ left. Ok that was all Its a super good beginning ;)
